Demystifying LASIK Eye Surgery: A Comprehensive Guide

Are you tired of reaching for your glasses first thing in the morning? Do you wish you could enjoy sports, swim, or read a restaurant menu without relying on contact lenses? If so, LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) might be the solution you’ve been searching for. Let’s explore the world of LASIK in a nutshell.

At our LASIK Center, we’ve performed thousands of successful LASIK procedures, and our doctors have even undergone the procedure themselves.

Understanding LASIK

LASIK is a groundbreaking refractive surgery that reshapes the cornea, the part of the eye responsible for focusing light onto the retina. If your cornea’s shape isn’t perfect, it can lead to common vision issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism—known as refractive errors.

Our expert surgeons, Drs. Beers and Liu, specialize in eliminating these errors, enabling you to see clearly without glasses or contact lenses. They offer a variety of refractive surgeries tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

Why Choose LASIK?

The reasons to opt for LASIK are numerous. It simplifies your life by allowing you to wake up and see clearly without the hassle of visual aids. Say goodbye to the ongoing costs of contact lenses and the daily routines associated with them. Enjoy the freedom to engage in activities without the hindrance of glasses or contacts. With a tremendous success rate, LASIK is the leading elective surgery in the United States.

The LASIK Procedure

The LASIK procedure is quick and relatively painless. You’ll relax in a comfortable chair, receive numbing eye drops, and have your eyelids gently held open. A thin corneal flap is surgically lifted, and laser correction is performed—this step takes about 30 to 60 seconds. Your corneal flap is then repositioned, and you can go home to rest. Most patients experience significantly improved vision the next day, though some may have minor fluctuations in the first few weeks.

Common LASIK Questions

  • Am I a suitable candidate? If you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism and are in good health, LASIK may be an option for you.
  • Understanding risks: Like any elective surgery, LASIK has associated risks, which we’ll thoroughly review with you to make an informed decision.
  • Does it hurt? The procedure is virtually painless, and any discomfort is minimal and short-lived.
  • How long does it take? The entire LASIK procedure lasts about 10 minutes, and the full visit takes about an hour.
