Lasik Surgery, stands for Laser in-situ Keratomileusis, LASIK is a prevalent eye surgery employed to correct vision in people who are farsighted, nearsighted or experience astigmatism. All Lasik surgery or laser-based vision correction eye surgeries function by reshaping cornea, which is a clear front portion of the eye, such that the light traveling via it is focused properly towards the retina.
Why LASIK surgery is done?
Lasik Surgery is recommended to treat a range of refractive vision errors. It may be suggested for some kinds of blurry visions, including
Astigmatism: It is a distortion of details in either of the distant and close vision as light rays don’t focus at single point clearly on the retina because of the unequal curvature of the eye surface.
Farsightedness or hyperopia
Nearsightedness or Myopia eye
How to achieve recovery?
LASIK surgery is an outpatient procedure, there is no need for getting admitted for this. Topical anesthetic drops are put into your eyes. After this you lie down on a bed and slide below the laser machine, much like what happens when you go for an MRI. Then you must follow the instructions and keep looking towards the blinking red light of the machine while the doctor performs the laser eye surgery. You may experience some heaviness for a few seconds and a temporary disappearance of the flickering light. The procedure takes around three to four minutes per eye. At the end your eye is washed thoroughly and sometimes a contact lens is placed on the eye for better healing.
Lasik Surgery is an FDA approved procedure. As with any other eye surgery such as cataract surgery, laser eye surgery, glaucoma surgery and others, it is recommended that you go by doctor’s instructions and the medication is taken as prescribed.
While LASIK surgery has a great success rate, it is significant that you discuss all the facets of process with your specialist before consenting to the Lasik surgery. Few patients experience discomfort in the first one or two days after the surgery is performed. The other complications or side effects, though rare, may include,
Finding halos surrounding the images
Difficult driving during night
