Many people living with corrective eyewear, do not consider that there is a way out that is affordable. LASIK can correct the eye’s refractive error which reduces or eliminates the need for visual aids such as eyeglasses and contact lenses. The surgery is recommended for those over 18, with the most common age range of patients being 20 to 40 years of age. For such a life changing procedure, there are few risks associated with this surgery, while the benefits on the other hand, are stunning!
It Seriously Works
Unlike other surgeries, LASIK is proven to work. After receiving surgery, a staggering 96% of patients report that they no longer need to use visual aids. In addition, enhancements are possible post-surgery. Adjustments can be made even years after one first receives LASIK surgery.
For those who have worn corrective eyewear for the majority of their lives, the turnaround time to see results for LASIK can be shocking. Most patients see their desired results immediately following the surgery. For some however, the full effects may not set in until the following day.
A serious concern expressed among patients of all major procedures is the pain and side effects associated with the surgery. Due to the numbing solution used on the patient’s eyes during the surgery, very little if any pain is felt. For the first 24 to 48 hours following the surgery, some patients experience mild side effects such as slight discomfort, glare, and dry eyes.
LASIK Is a Viable Solution
LASIK eye surgery is a real and viable solution for those who wish to be rid of contacts or glasses. LASIK is surprisingly affordable and can easily fit into most patients budgets. Contact Eye Michigan for an appointment to see if you or your loved one are candidates and to learn more.
