Understanding LASIK & Refractive Surgery

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a popular refractive surgery that reshapes the cornea to improve vision, reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.

LASIK is an outpatient, two-step process lasting approximately 15 minutes for both eyes. The surgeon creates a thin, hinged corneal flap using a laser, allowing for precise corneal reshaping. Patients often report minimal discomfort, with rapid vision improvement.

Wavefront LASIK, also known as custom LASIK, employs computerized analysis to guide laser treatment. This advanced technique corrects subtle optical imperfections, enhancing precision over standard prescriptions. Studies reveal improved night vision and reduced risks of halos or glare with wavefront-guided LASIK.

  • LASIK.
  • PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy).
  • SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction).

Our co-management approach ensures seamless postoperative care. If an enhancement or second LASIK surgery is required, or if eyewear is needed, our expert team is here for you.

  • Pre-Surgery Evaluation: We conduct a thorough pre-surgery evaluation to determine candidacy, assess eye health, and discuss expectations with patients.
  • Collaborative Care: Vision I Care collaborates with trusted ophthalmologists to provide seamless pre- and post-surgery care, ensuring optimal outcomes.
  • Post-Surgery Follow-Up: Our optometrists offer post-surgery follow-up appointments to monitor healing, address any concerns, and provide ongoing eye care.

Following LASIK, medicated eye drops and protective shields aid healing. Patients can typically resume activities the next day, with driving permitted after a comprehensive eye exam. It may take months for eyes to stabilize completely.

While many enjoy clear vision after LASIK, eyewear may still be needed. Sunglasses with 100% UV protection are vital, and reading glasses may be necessary for those over 40. Routine eye exams remain essential for overall eye health.
