What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK eye surgery is a popular and effective procedure that can help improve your vision and eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. At Metro EYE MD we offer advanced LASIK options that can address a range of refractive errors, including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. 

LASIK works by reshaping the cornea, the transparent layer at the front of the eye, to improve the way light enters the eye and is focused on the retina. During the procedure, Dr. Nissirios will use a laser to create a small flap in the cornea, which is then lifted to allow access to the underlying tissue.

The laser is then used to reshape the cornea, and the flap is replaced to protect the treated area. The procedure is typically quick and painless, with most patients experiencing improved vision immediately after the surgery. At Metro EYE MD, we use the latest technology and equipment to ensure that our patients receive the highest standard of care and achieve optimal results. 

LASIK Procedure

We understand that the decision to undergo LASIK eye surgery can be a significant one. That’s why we take the time to walk you through the entire process and make sure you feel comfortable and informed every step of the way.

Before the procedure, you will meet with one of our experienced eye surgeons to discuss your medical history, current medications, and any questions or concerns you may have. We will also conduct a comprehensive eye exam to determine whether you are a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery.

On the day of your LASIK eye surgery, you will be given a mild sedative to help you relax. Our team will clean and numb your eye, and then use a special device to keep your eyelids open. Your eye surgeon will use a laser to create a small flap in the cornea, which is then lifted to allow access to the underlying tissue. The laser is then used to reshape the cornea, and the flap is replaced to protect the treated area. The entire procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes.

Following the procedure, you will need to rest for a short period before being cleared to go home. You will need to arrange for transportation, as you will not be able to drive yourself. Your eye may feel scratchy or uncomfortable for a few days, but most patients can return to work and normal activities within a day or two. We will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions and schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress.

If you have been considering LASIK eye surgery, we encourage you to reach out to Metro Eye MD for a consultation. During your consultation, we will examine your eyes, review your medical history, and determine whether LASIK eye surgery is the right solution for you. We will discuss the procedure in detail, answer your questions, and provide you with information on what to expect before, during, and after your LASIK eye surgery.

Who Should Consider LASIK?

Most people choose to have LASIK in order to lessen their reliance on glasses or contact lenses, which is the main reason. As LASIK is a permanent operation, you will be able to enjoy the benefits for the rest of your life.

Although astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness are refractive flaws that can be corrected with LASIK, other eye diseases will not enhance vision. You most likely have a refractive error if you have worn visual aids for the most of your life.

In addition to visual independence, it influences people’s decisions to get LASIK. It might occasionally be as easy as not liking how they appear while wearing glasses.

Some people who wear contact lenses could struggle with annoying signs of dry eye. Whatever your motivations, if you desire to achieve visual freedom, they are all legitimate.

LASIK can actually change your life and give you access to an entirely new way of living. Contact Westlake Eye Specialists to learn more about our LASIK surgical services and take the first step toward a hassle-free vision.

LASIK eye surgery is designed to provide long-lasting results, with most patients experiencing a significant improvement in their vision that lasts for many years. However, it is important to note that the eyes can still change over time due to age, injury, or other factors, and a follow-up appointment with an eye doctor is necessary to monitor your eye health.

If you are considering LASIK eye surgery, the first step is to schedule a consultation with an experienced ophthalmologist. During the consultation, the doctor will perform a thorough eye exam to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. Factors such as age, eye health, and the severity of your vision impairment will be taken into consideration.

LASIK eye surgery can be a more cost-effective solution than purchasing glasses or contact lenses over a lifetime. Although the initial cost of the procedure may seem high, the long-term savings on corrective lenses can make LASIK a more affordable option in the long run.

The success rate for LASIK eye surgery is generally very high, with most patients experiencing a significant improvement in their vision. However, as with any surgical procedure, there is a small risk of complications or side effects. By choosing an experienced ophthalmologist and following post-operative care instructions, you can minimize the risk of any complications.

The LASIK surgery is regarded as permanent. The aging of the eye is not halted by LASIK, though. Vision alterations brought on by other age-related eye disorders including cataracts and presbyopia cannot be stopped by LASIK.
