Despite the fact that glasses have become quite the fashion statement in the last decade or so, there are still plenty of reasons an individual might want to lose the frames. For some, contacts are a perfect solution, but for others, a more permanent method is the answer. Some simply have trouble with contacts and prefer not to wear them, while others’ vision problems are too severe for contact lenses to correct. In either case, there is one overwhelmingly popular option for perfect vision: LASIK surgery.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a type of refractive laser eye surgery used to correct common vision problems like farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism. Essentially, LASIK uses a refractive laser to burn away tissue and reshape the cornea to correct the patient’s vision. The patient is given strong numbing eye drops to ensure a painless procedure, and may even be given a mild sedative to help them relax.
The procedure takes place in three main phases. First, a flap is created at the front of the cornea. Then, the laser is used to reshape the inner cornea, employing eye tracking to ensure accuracy. Finally, the flap is repositioned for healing. Patients are often given antibiotics and various eye drops to aid in the healing process.
If you suffer from vision issues and would like to say goodbye to glasses and contacts forever, contact our office to set up an appointment with one of our experienced ophthalmologists. Our doctors will talk with you about your vision problems, educate you on the LASIK process, and examine your eyes to determine whether you are a candidate for the surgery.
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.
LASIK is a frequently performed laser eye surgery used to treat a range of vision problems including astigmatism, hyperopia, and myopia. LASIK is a procedure used to reshape the cornea to allow light to be correctly focused on the retina. This correction clears the vision of the patient without the need for corrective lenses.
LASIK is a relatively pain free procedure and can be completed in just about 15 minutes with an almost immediate improvement in vision. Those who are considered for LASIK surgery must have healthy eyes, as any conditions that affect how the eyes heal or respond to a surgery must be resolved before LASIK surgery is scheduled. Each candidate must be evaluated in order to determine whether or not LASIK is a good option for them. Those who are not a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery do have other options available to them such as LASEK and PRK surgery.
LASIK eye surgery has a phenomenal track record for success and the majority of people who receive it are very satisfied with the results. The eye doctors at Eye Michigan can determine whether or not LASIK is a good choice for you. LASIK is the perfect solution for individuals seeking clarity of vision and an improvement in quality of life.

No! You will not feel pain during LASIK eye surgery. Before beginning, the surgeon will administer a dose of anesthetic eye drops to ensure a comfortable, pain-free procedure. Furthermore, if you need, the surgeon can provide a medication to alleviate any anxiety you may have about the short surgery. Afterward, pain medication can be prescribed depending on your comfort with the recovery process. Most LASIK patients report little to no discomfort in the days following surgery. Please contact us. We can help alleviate these concerns.
“I only need to make an appointment with an eye doctor if I need glasses or if I have a problem with my eyes.”
You should have annual exams with your eye doctor. If you have certain diseases or a family history, you may need to make an appointment more often. Your eyes serve as windows and often diseases are first discovered by your eye doctor.
Vision changes are often gradual. Your eyes are a powerful tool and often work together to compensate for each other if there is a problem. You may not be aware of your loss of vision until you look through a proper lens. We see many eye opening moments when corrected lenses or LASIK surgery is performed. You forget what clear vision looks like.
There are many diseases such as Glaucoma that have no warning signs. According to the American Optometric Association, Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. By visiting your eye doctor regularly, an early treatment plan can be implemented.
Advocate for yourself and your family members and see your eye doctor regularly for an exam.
