The lasik vision
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea of the eye in order to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and typically takes about 15 minutes for both eyes.
During the procedure, the surgeon creates a small flap in the cornea using a laser or a blade. The flap is lifted and the laser is applied to the underlying tissue to reshape the cornea. The flap is then replaced, and it begins to heal.
Most people experience significant improvement in their vision within 24 hours of the procedure, and the majority of patients achieve 20/20 vision or better. However, there are some risks associated with the procedure, such as dry eyes, glare and halos, and under or over correction, which need to be considered before deciding to undergo the surgery.
It’s important to have a consultation with a qualified eye surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK and what are the risks and benefits for you.
