At All Saints Eye Center, we are committed to providing you with the safest and most innovative treatments to enjoy crisp and clear eyesight. Our team of qualified ophthalmologists are proven experts in laser vision correction, including LASIK surgery. LASIK is a quick and virtually painless procedure, and the most popular laser eye surgery option for treating common refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. By combining years of experience with the latest advances in laser eye surgery, All Saints Eye Center can help you restore your ability to see clearly without glasses or contacts, all while improving your quality of life.
LASIK is a safe procedure that can be completed in our office in approximately 15 minutes. We do our utmost to make the procedure as painless and comfortable as possible. To begin, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the eyes. Once the eyes are numbed, a thin flap will be created to access the cornea. The flap is folded back and an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea. Once complete, the flap is closed back over the cornea so it can naturally heal. No sutures are needed.
Immediately after the procedure, you will need to have someone drive you home. There is minimal downtime with LASIK; most patients are able to return to work the following day. You can expect to begin seeing results in less than 24 hours. Our team will schedule a follow-up visit with you to monitor your vision.
LASIK is one of the most popular and effective laser vision correction procedures available today. But as with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Rare but possible side effects include infection, dry eye and glare. Complications are rare and occur in less than 1 percent of surgeries.
