If you are considering getting LASIK done, you will want to know all of the important details about it before making your commitment. Here at Park Professional Eyecare, we will answer all of your questions, and help to co-manage the process for you to make things simpler, smoother, and to ensure that you are fully informed.
LASIK works by having an eye surgeon reshape your corneas using lasers instead of the sharp surgical instruments in traditional surgery. This means that there is no bleeding, no scarring, and no stitches or bandages required. The idea behind the procedure is to have light directed from your corneas toward the center of your retinas, which is associated with normal vision, instead of toward the front or back of the retinas, as is the case with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It’s a quick, safe, and highly effective method with a success rate of about 90%. So there are many reasons to feel very positive about it. Our eye care in Pelham Gardens will determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK. Unfortunately, not everyone is. Assuming that you are considered qualified, you can expect that the outcome of the surgery will be that you will have far less need for your glasses or contacts. If you are lucky, you may have no need for corrective lenses at all afterward. Most patients notice the improvement in vision by the next day or even later the same day as surgery. Our eye care in Pelham Gardens will do an eye exam and consultation as part of our co-management services. It is important to give the proper attention to any surgical decision, even one that will be done with lasers.
