LASIK surgery is one of the safest and most comfortable procedures you can undergo. Due to this, and its high success rate, LASIK is the most common procedure used to correct vision. In refractive surgeries, the laser reshapes the surface of your eye, improving the cornea so that light is properly focused on the retina. This allows you to see without using glasses or contact lenses. Each eye is done separately, and the procedure takes around five minutes for each eye. You will be asked to look directly into the laser for the length of the procedure, but it will be entirely painless; you may only feel some mild pressure on the eye. You can expect hazy and blurry vision immediately after receiving LASIK, but your vision will begin to improve almost immediately. LASIK in itself is a simple procedure, and it has a simple recovery to match. In most cases vision is corrected in only a couple days after surgery, and the recovery is very simple; we recommend that you rest as much as possible to allow the eye to heal quickly, but you will be able to return to your routine a day or two after having the procedure done. This simple procedure can have an enormous impact on your life. Consider LASIK surgery at Cornea Consultants of Albany as a means to correct your vision and improve the way you see the world.
