Is LASIK Surgery Right for Your Eyes?
Modern technology allows for LASIK surgery to correct vision for some people who have always relied on eyeglasses or contact lenses to see the world around them with focus and clarity. The Eye Health Group offers LASIK in Springfield, NJ and other areas in New York and New Jersey with multiple offices to provide for residents according to individual neighborhoods where they might live.
What to Consider before LASIK Surgery
The first thing to understand is that LASIK is an approved medical treatment that can treat certain conditions that cause poor vision. In layman's terms rather than medical specifics, it uses a laser to even out the inconsistencies of your eye's corneas which are inhibiting the best vision. Although common, such instances aren't always the cause of poor vision, and in some cases, a person's outer cornea layer may be too thin to accept the treatment. With that said, most vision loss is reparable with LASIK, but an optometrist must first review your case and make a final determination.
What to Expect with LASIK Surgery
The most common question about LASIK surgery is, “how soon can I see again?” The quick answer is, immediately. The more intricate answer is that you can't drive until a follow-up appointment confirms recovery. You'll also have to be careful about bathing not to get water in your eyes for several weeks afterward, and you don't want to wear makeup until you can wash your face. Your eyes will be dry and require special eyedrops while healing.
