To put it simply, wearing glasses is annoying. If you lose your glasses, you’re left unable to see until you find them again. And every so often, you’re going to have to get a new pair of glasses. If you want nice designer glasses, you’re going to have to pay a lot for them. It can start to feel like you are simply wasting money buying new glasses all the time. If you are tired of wasting money on eyeglasses, then you might want to look into LASIK eye surgery.
LASIK eye surgery is by far the most common procedure that is performed to correct problems with vision. Hundreds of thousands of individuals have this procedure performed on an annual basis.
During your LASIK procedure, our surgeon is going to target the cornea of your eye, raise the flap and then reshape parts of your eye to improve your vision. LASIK eye surgery is a very versatile procedure. It can be used for individuals who are shortsighted or farsighted. It can even be used for individuals who have astigmatism.
Not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. That’s why it’s important for you to have a consultation with our eye surgeon and have him go over the qualifications for being a candidate for this procedure.
For the vast majority of patients, LASIK eye surgery means that they can say goodbye to their eyeglasses. This procedure has been used for years, and it has been clearly proven to correct vision problems. The procedure provides virtually immediate results. Most patients are able to notice an improvement in their vision either the day of the procedure or the day immediately following the procedure. The recovery is quick as well.
