The procedure is quick, painless, and has a high success rate. It’s a great option for people who are tired of relying on glasses or contacts to see clearly.

How LASIK Works

  1. Preparation: Before the procedure, the eye surgeon will use a numbing drop to make sure you’re comfortable. They will then use a special tool to keep your eye open during the surgery
  2. Creating a flap: To perform the LASIK procedure, the surgeon will create a thin, hinged flap on the surface of your cornea using a special laser. This flap is then lifted to expose the underlying cornea.
  3. Reshaping the cornea: The surgeon will use another laser to reshape the cornea to correct your vision problem. This is a painless process that takes only a few seconds.
  4. Replacing the flap: Once the cornea has been reshaped, the surgeon will carefully replace the flap back onto the surface of the eye. The flap will then heal on its own without the need for stitches.

The entire LASIK procedure takes only about 15 minutes per eye. After the procedure, your vision may be blurry for a few hours, but most people notice a significant improvement in their vision within the first day or two. You will need to follow a few post-operative instructions, such as avoiding rubbing your eyes and wearing protective eyewear, to ensure proper healing.

Signs that make you a good candidate for LASIK

There are several signs that you might be a good candidate for LASIK surgery. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may want to consider scheduling a consultation with an eye doctor to determine if LASIK is right for you:

  1. Difficulty seeing objects clearly: If you’re having trouble seeing objects clearly, particularly at a distance, it may be a sign that you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. LASIK can help correct these refractive errors and improve your vision.
  2. Frequent headaches or eye strain: If you’re experiencing frequent headaches or eye strain, particularly after reading, working on a computer, or doing other activities that require focusing your eyes, it may be a sign that you have a refractive error that could be corrected with LASIK.
  3. Discomfort wearing glasses or contacts: If you find glasses or contacts uncomfortable, irritating, or inconvenient, LASIK can be a great option to reduce or eliminate your need for them.
  4. Active lifestyle: If you have an active lifestyle and participate in sports or other activities that make it difficult or inconvenient to wear glasses or contacts, LASIK can be a great option to improve your vision and allow you to be more active.
  5. Desire for greater freedom and convenience: If you’re tired of dealing with the inconvenience of glasses or contacts, and you’re looking for greater freedom and convenience in your daily life, LASIK can be a great option.

Overall, LASIK is a safe and effective way to correct vision problems, and it can greatly improve your quality of life. If you’re considering LASIK, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Simone to see if it’s right for you.
