A popular procedure performed today to improve eyesight is that of LASIK eye treatment, and many of our patients who want to eliminate the need for vision correction solutions such as eyeglasses and contact lenses may consider this treatment.

What Happens During LASIK Eye Treatment?

The first step performed in the LASIK surgical procedure is the creation of a thin corneal flap, which is done by using an instrument called a microkeratome. The doctor will then use a laser to reshape the inner layers of your eye, resulting in improved vision. The treatment is performed under proper sedation and anesthesia for patient comfort.

What Are the Benefits of LASIK Eye Treatment?

One of the critical benefits of LASIK eye treatment is that it offers patients a safer, more reliable alternative to other vision correction methods. Unlike glasses and contact lenses which can easily break or become lost, LASIK surgery uses a laser to reshape the cornea and correct vision permanently. This eliminates the need for repeat procedures over time and dramatically reduces the risk of complications associated with traditional vision correction techniques.

In addition to being safe and effective, LASIK eye treatment also offers additional benefits such as improved self-esteem and enhanced overall quality of life. Many patients who undergo this procedure report feeling more confident after their vision has been corrected, allowing them to do everything from playing sports to performing at work without worrying about their eyesight. Additionally, it is a relatively quick and painless procedure that typically takes less than an hour to complete.
