LASIK eye surgery is one of the most common laser vision correction surgeries used to treat vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
LASIK eye surgery is widely seen as one of the safest and most convenient elective medical procedures available. It offers one of the quickest and easiest recovery periods– most people are back to their normal routines after only 24 hours. While glasses and contact lenses offer a temporary solution to vision problems, LASIK eye surgery provides a permanent solution by reshaping the cornea to correct refraction. It can significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses, thereby transforming the quality of life for its patients.
How does LASIK work?
LASIK eye surgery is a refractive procedure, meaning that it works by adjusting the way light is processed by the eye, which in turn improves vision. Many common vision errors occur because light does not filter properly through the cornea, the transparent, dome-shaped tissue covering the front of the eye. It is responsible for bending and refracting light in order to focus it into a precise image on the retina in the back of the eye. When light bends incorrectly, however, it prevents a precise image from forming, causing vision problems.
LASIK eye surgery offers a permanent solution to vision issues by reshaping the cornea itself to ensure that light is refracted correctly.
The Benefits Of LASIK Eye Surgery
In addition to the procedure being quick (about 10 minutes in length) and a short recovery period (you can be back in action within 24 hours), the benefits of LASIK eye surgery include the following:
- It reduces or eliminates the need for glasses and contact lenses
- It leads to long-term savings by cutting out the regular purchase of glasses, contact lenses, and contact lens solutions, little expenses that can add up over time.
- It simplifies your daily routine. Life without glasses and contact lenses means there’s one less thing to think about during your day.
