Keep reading to discover how you can empower yourself with your best ever vision after LASIK!

What is LASIK?

LASIK is a laser vision correction procedure that corrects refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It’s a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home after the procedure.

It only takes a few minutes to complete, and you’ll have both eyes treated. You’ll have your eyes numbed with eye drops to ensure you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.

During LASIK, a femtosecond and excimer laser are used to remove small and highly precise amounts of corneal tissue to correct your refractive error. Refractive errors are caused by irregularities in the shape of the cornea, the clear front part of your eye.

By reshaping the cornea, LASIK can correct your refractive error and allow you to see without contact lenses or glasses! LASIK also improves your vision beyond your original prescription.

That means you can see better than you could with visual aids. It’s not an accident that most LASIK patients end up with 20/20 vision or better.

It’s also not an accident that LASIK patients say they have better depth perception and contrast after the procedure. If you want the best vision of your life, LASIK could be the answer you’ve been looking for!

Easy Recovery

LASIK has many benefits. Many people who have LASIK experience almost instant visual improvements after the procedure.

If you experience discomfort, it should be minimal and go away after a few days. You’ll need to take precautions to protect your eyes.

These precautions are simple things like wearing sunglasses outside, using all prescribed eye drops as directed, refraining from wearing eye makeup, and avoiding pools and hot tubs that contain chlorine.

Although most patients notice almost instant visual improvements, you’ll continue to see your vision improve in the days and weeks after LASIK. Complete healing takes 3-6 months to reach your peak vision after LASIK.

At this point, you’ll have the crisp, sharp vision you’ve always wanted. While your eyes heal, you won’t have to worry about lying in bed or keeping yourself from doing what you love. You’ll instead be out and about experiencing the world with improved sight like never before.

Long-Lasting Results

One of the things that makes LASIK so popular is the results will last. Because LASIK permanently reshapes your cornea to correct refractive errors, this can mean decades of improved vision.

Around 96% of patients achieve 20/20 or better from LASIK surgery, and those results last. One of the most essential factors for LASIK candidacy is having stable vision. The reason for this is to ensure your vision won’t change after undergoing the procedure.

Although LASIK can correct refractive errors, it cannot prevent the development of age-related eye conditions, meaning you can still develop cataracts, presbyopia, and other age-related eye conditions. However, having LASIK doesn’t prevent treatment for age-related eye conditions, so you can still receive the necessary treatment.

Experience Visual Freedom

The primary reason most patients choose to have LASIK is to eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses. LASIK can provide total visual freedom, allowing you to see without visual aids.

Imagine how much simpler your life could be without pesky contact lenses or glasses. Imagine how much time and energy you can save when you don’t have to put in your contacts, take them out all the time, or clean your smudged glasses.

You’ll be able to live your life more freely without frames or lenses weighing you down!

See In High Definition

LASIK not only corrects your vision, but it also corrects it beyond your prescription. That means that LASIK can help you see better than you ever could, even when wearing an updated prescription for your contact lenses and glasses!

LASIK can give you incredibly sharp vision by changing the shape of your cornea. This high-definition vision has very real effects.

Patients tend to have better depth perception. Better depth perception can improve your reaction time, making you more agile.

Patients also often report that colors look more vibrant. That usually means your color perception is better, so you’ll have a better eye for design. Better vision can translate into improvement in many different areas of your life!

The Power of Better Vision

LASIK can help you save time and energy while significantly enhancing your vision. The procedure is truly empowering.

The confidence that comes from LASIK can help you do more with your life, whether that’s taking the next step in your career or taking the next step in a relationship! When you’ve spent most of your life relying on visual aids to make sure your world isn’t blurry or distorted, seeing better than ever without depending on glasses and contacts can feel like a superpower.
