LASIK surgery is an efficient way to say goodbye to problems with vision. Whether you have had vision conditions for as long as you can remember or your vision declined throughout the years, there are many ways to resolve the issue. Lasik eye surgery is a once for all treatment that will give back your sight for good.
Lasik eye surgery is a corrective eye surgery that reshapes the cornea (the clear front layer of the eye) and enhances how the eye focuses light rays onto the retina. The surgery has a 90% success rate and is the safest method among most common vision correction surgeries.
Lasik eye surgery results can be observed on the same day after the surgery meeting 20/20 vision.The procedure is a corrective eye surgery that addresses:
During the surgery, you will be put under local anesthesia using numbing eye drops. You won't feel any pain or discomfort but experiencing some pressure on your eyes is considered normal. You might hear some clicking sounds as well. The procedure takes about 1-2 hours and is an outpatient one.
LASIK is primarily a procedure to correct the eyesight conditions but there are certain symptoms that can be improved after the surgery too.
According to American society for contract and refractive surgeries, [میلاد1]LASIK surgery is the safest type of eye correction procedure carried out all over the world. Yet, you should make sure you are the right candidate.
Lasik reshapes and corrects the cornea to treat astigmatism. With most sight-related eye conditions including astigmatism, the light is bent incorrectly and focused elsewhere. As a result, a person's vision can be affected. Astigmatism causes blurred eyesight and difficulty with night vision.
The complications of astigmatism usually worsen at nights and in low light. People with night vision problems have difficulty driving because they are prone to experiencing halos and glare.
Glasses and contact lenses bend the light to make it focus correctly; LASIK corrects the condition by reshaping the cornea itself. Most people have astigmatism to some extent. Lasik can treat even higher degrees of astigmatism but the cost could vary too.
Although you are not going to experience the same haziness and blurry vision you had previously, you might feel like you need glasses after a while. Wearing contact lenses might be difficult due to the cornea that has been reshaped.
People who experience farsightedness due to getting older, are more likely to get back to reading glasses; Because their vision changes at a faster rate than someone whose condition is not due to age.
In most cases, the degree of decline in vision after the surgery will be subtle if any. But you can consult with an ophthalmologist and he/she may suggest retreatment which is a secondary LASIK surgery or other refractive operations.

Before farewelling your glasses, you should make sure you are absolutely prepared for the LASIK eye surgery procedure.
You may experience itching and burning sensation for some time after the surgery. The discomfort could take 3 days to two weeks. In the initial days after the surgery, blurry vision and haziness are normal.
After the surgery, you may need to stay at the hospital for a day or two. But in most cases, there is no need for hospitalization.
A couple of days after the surgery, you will have check-up visit with the doctor. He or she will check your visual acuity in this session.
You can get back to your country 3-5 days after the surgery but you should wait at least a week before engaging in any strenuous activity or sports.
Numbing eye drops prevent any discomfort or pain during the surgery. However, some patients experience moderate discomfort for one day or two after the procedure.
in a study, American Society for Cataract and Refractive surgery stated that LASIK eye surgery is the most efficient and safest procedure among corrective eye surgeries. That is, severe complications following the surgery are extremely rare.
Some limited cases may experience blurriness to some extent. Usually due to gradual changes that occur in the lens inside the eye. But the overall result is going to be much better than before.
Both Lasik surgery and cataract surgery can successfully correct nearsightedness and farsightedness. But as opposed to LASIK surgery, cataract surgery cannot correct astigmatism.
Astigmatism is a very common vision problem that could be fully corrected by LASIK. Thus, Lasik cannot lead to astigmatism.
Blindness is a severe and very uncommon complication of LASIK.
Few patients have reported that they need to return to glasses but this happens occasionally and even if it does, you will still be able to see much better than you did before.
Depending on what the Ophthalmologist suggests, secondary surgery, known as retreatment, could be an option.
