What is LASIK surgery?
LASIK eye surgery is the most common form of Laser eye surgery that is performed to correct short-sightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. It is normally a relatively pain free and short process and is preferred by both doctors and patients alike.
During LASIK eye surgery, an incision is usually made across the cornea, after which a flap of tissue is raised. Once this is done, the cornea is reshaped. This helps to correct the vision. Then the flap is put back in place and the incision is closed.
5 Key Advantages of LASIK surgery:
Almost completely pain-free
Being a surgery that uses Laser technology, LASIK surgery is almost completely pain-free. This makes it a much more viable option than traditional surgery without worrying about deep cuts.
One of the biggest advantages of LASIK surgery is that the results are almost immediate. While there is some healing post-surgery, a person can effectively stop wearing glasses or contact lenses immediately after the surgery.
LASIK surgery has a pretty quick recovery time since there are no stitches involved. In fact, patients can go home post-surgery the same day making it much easier to schedule.
LASIK surgery has very low failure rates, as less as 1% being the chances of serious complications post-surgery. This makes it a very attractive option for surgery for vision correction.
Being a technologically advanced procedure, LASIK surgery is a quick procedure that is much less time-consuming than traditional surgical methods. It usually does not take more than 15 minutes for each eye, meaning if a person needs surgery in both eyes, they will be done within 30 minutes. This is less than the time taken to be prepped for traditional surgery. Coupled with all the other benefits, this is another compelling reason to consider LASIK surgery.
