Frequently Asked Questions About Lasik
For your reference, we’ve compiled some answers to a few of the most commonly asked questions we receive about LASIK below.
Will Lasik Give Me 20/20 Vision?
A lot of people assume that LASIK surgery will automatically give them “perfect” 20/20 vision, and while it’s true that some patients will enjoy 20/20 vision after having LASIK done, there is no way of guaranteeing that this will be the case. Still, most people who have LASIK done are able to see well enough that they no longer need to wear corrective lenses. An experienced LASIK surgeon will be able to give you a better idea of the level of vision correction you can expect based on your specific situation.
Is Lasik Surgery Painful?
Since you’re awake and conscious during a LASIK procedure, you might make the assumption that you’re going to feel everything as it happens. This is simply not true! Before your procedure, the surgeon will apply numbing eye drops to your eyes, which will prevent you from feeling any pain during the procedure. You may feel some “odd” sensations and some pressure here and there, but the surgery itself should be painless.
How Long Is The Recovery For Lasik?
This can vary from one patient to the next, but most people are completely healed and recovered from the surgery within one to two weeks. During this time, it’s important to protect the eyes from infection and see your eye doctor regularly for follow-ups as scheduled.
