Is Laser Eye Surgery Right For You?
If you are considering laser eye surgery, please request an appointment to meet with an Optometrist to discuss the procedure and assess your eyes.
This method of vision correction is well studied and practiced, as well it is performed millions of times per year in America.
There are several different types of laser refractive surgery performed today. The most widely performed is LASIK, though LASEK and PRK are viable options for many.
LASIK – laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis – Using a laser or microkeratome, a small flap is made in your corneal tissue. Your corneal cells are then treated by the laser, correcting their refractive errors.
LASEK – laser assisted subepithelial keratectomy – In this procedure, the surgeon removes the skin flap entirely, preserving it and replacing it back over the area when the procedure is complete. Like LASIK, a powerful laser is used to correct the refractive errors.
PRK – photorefractive keratectomy – In this procedure, the skin flap is again removed, although it is not replaced. The body will regrow a new epithelial lining naturally.
However, like all medical procedures, surgery comes with risk of potential side effects. These include:
Blurry or hazy vision Eye discomfort, a feeling of burning or itching
Dry eye syndrome
In most cases, side effects are temporary and resolve during or after the recovery process. Recovery can take as long as six months, though for most people it takes less than five
