What is LASIK?
LASIK is a permanent vision correction procedure that eliminates the need for glasses and contacts. It is a quick in-office procedure that reshapes your cornea with a special laser.
LASIK is for you if you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Its recovery period is straightforward and quick.
Most people can resume normal activities within a few days. You may notice some eye redness for a couple of weeks, but the recovery should not be difficult.
Who is LASIK Right For?
The only way to know if you are a good candidate for LASIK is to discuss it with your eye doctor. You must meet specific requirements to qualify for LASIK, which they will go over with you. These include:
- Being in your mid to late twenties, at least
- Having thick enough corneas
- Being in good health
- Having healthy, disease-free eyes
- You are not pregnant or nursing
- Your vision has not changed in the last six months
The primary concern when determining LASIK candidacy is ensuring that your eyes won’t change after the procedure. Hormonal shifts from pregnancy, disease, or eyes that are still growing can impact your LASIK outcome.
Also, if your corneas are too thin, it can be dangerous to get LASIK. That’s because your surgeon creates a flap with the outer layer of your cornea.
If there is not enough tissue there, creating the flap can harm your eyes. If you don’t qualify for LASIK, there are a variety of LASIK alternatives that could be right for you.
As long as you meet all the LASIK requirements, you can undergo the procedure. Your eye doctor will go over your expectations for getting LASIK and how you can prepare for it.
LASIK is Permanent and Life-Changing!
Once you’ve had LASIK, it will forever change your life. You’ll be able to see vivid colors and shapes clearly.
Headaches and eye infections will become a thing of the past. And you’ll no longer have to struggle to focus or scramble to find your glasses or contacts when you need them.
Imagine all the beauty of winter and New Year’s you’ll experience in fine detail. Fireworks, art, books, and falling snow will all be even more miraculous than they were before.
