LASIK EXPLAINED

LASIK is a type of refractive surgery. This kind of surgery uses a laser to treat vision problems caused by refractive errors. You have a refractive error when your eye does not refract (bend) light properly.
For you to see clearly, light rays must travel through your cornea and lens. The cornea and lens refract the light so it lands on the retina. The retina turns light into signals that travel to your brain and become images. With refractive errors, the shape of your cornea or lens keeps light from bending properly. When light is not focused on the retina as it should be, your vision is blurry.
With LASIK, your ophthalmologist uses a laser to change the shape of your cornea. This laser eye surgery improves the way light rays are focused on the retina. LASIK is used to treat myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
The goal of LASIK is to correct your refractive error to improve your vision. LASIK eye surgery may reduce your need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. In some cases, it may even allow you to do without them completely.

Nearsightedness (myopia) is when close-up objects look clear but distant objects are blurry. For instance, you can read a map clearly but have trouble seeing well enough to drive a car.

Farsightedness (also called hyperopia) is a refractive error. This is when the eye does not refract—or bend—light properly. Generally, a farsighted person sees clearly far, but near vision is blurry.

Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of your eye’s cornea or lens.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Numbing eye drops are placed into your eyes before the procedure to block the feeling of pain. Of course, every person has their own unique threshold for discomfort, but most patients do not report that the process is painful. You will feel a sensation of pressure on the eye during the first step of the process. Medicated eye drops or over-the-counter pain medications may help soothe any discomfort you experience as your eyes heal.

 

The full LASIK procedure takes 10 minutes, from the time you enter the LASIK suite until you go into the recovery area. However, the laser treatment where we reshape your cornea takes less than 3 minutes! Some patients can even see more clearly immediately after the procedure.

 

People are usually amazed to learn how quick LASIK recovery is. In fact, the healing process begins immediately after surgery. Most patients can return to normal, non-strenuous activities the very next day, although there may be some vision fluctuations as your eyes continue to heal and your vision stabilizes.

 

Although LASIK has a less than 1% serious complication rate among experienced LASIK doctors, it is still a surgical procedure and therefore carries some element of risk. Complications of LASIK can include: Starbursts, glare or haloes in low light environments, dry eyes, overcorrection or undercorrection, corneal flap complications
Infection, pain, blurred vision.

Generally, individuals over 18 with stable vision prescriptions, good eye health, and realistic expectations are suitable candidates.

Vision correction from LASIK is often long-lasting, but as individuals age, some may require additional vision correction later in life.

Yes. This is called a bilateral LASIK procedure. You can choose to have the surgery on both eyes or just one eye at a time.

While most patients can achieve 20/20 vision or better after LASIK at Mosaddegh Eye Institute, it is important to realize that your vision is constantly changing. One eye condition that most people develop after age 40 is presbyopia. This is a gradual stiffening of the eye lenses that makes it difficult to focus on things up close like reading material. Over-the-counter reading glasses may be necessary, even if you have had successful LASIK.
