Are you annoyed with the pressing pain of glasses behind your ears? Tired of looking at life through a lens? Exhausted from looking for misplaced glasses multiple times a day? Well, look no further. We have just the solution for you: LASIK Eye Surgery!
Why Should I Get LASIK?
The bladeless procedure is a good option for patients with very high prescriptions or astigmatism. It also helps to reduce nighttime glare. In the past, patients have been told they were not a candidate for LASIK due to the shape or thickness of their corneas (excessively steep, flat or thin). With the bladeless procedure, many of these patients are now able to safely enjoy the benefits of LASIK. In addition, patients who choose the bladeless LASIK option are entitled to a lifetime guarantee, or FREE enhancements for life.
Does it Hurt?
No, LASIK does not hurt. Your eyes are anesthetized and you are awake during the entire procedure. You are given 5mg of Valium (pill form) to help you relax. It is not unusual for patients to experience a sandy, gritty sensation in the eyes during the initial healing period of 24 – 48 hours after the procedure.
What is the Downtime?
Most of our patients are able to drive themselves to their first post-op appointment the following day! Most people can return to work within 24 hours, however, please ask your surgeon what is best for you.
How Do I Know if LASIK is Right for Me?
Being a candidate for a refractive procedure is best determined during a free LASIK consultation appointment with one of our eye care professionals. During the consultation, measurements will be taken which include stability of your prescription, the thickness of the front surface (cornea) of your eye, and the overall health of your eyes. While there is no “ideal” age to have LASIK, we recommend a patient be over the age of 18 and have a stable prescription.
How Clear Will my Vision be After the Procedure?
With the use of custom-guided, wave-front technology, Dr. Stein and the team at Total Eye Care & Cosmetic Laser Centers have been able to improve patient’s vision often beyond the traditional ‘perfect 20/20.’
Is LASIK Cost-Effective?
Yes, LASIK is cost-effective because you no longer will have to pay for glasses, new prescriptions, or contact lenses/solution. It is an investment that will save you money in the long run.
