While many find the idea of LASIK scary, the fact is that over 10 million Americans have had the procedure, LASIK is FDA-approved and the complication rate statistics are extremely low. Choosing the right surgeon is a huge factor, however, in providing you confidence with a successful outcome.
Some patients report mild discomfort, similar to the feeling of an eyelash in their eye for the first few hours after having the procedure. Most patients are very comfortable during and after, reporting perhaps itchiness or mild redness. When needed, a mild over-the-counter anti-inflammatory can be used, with symptoms generally gone within 24 hours.
Most people return to their normal activities the day after their procedure. However, it’s not a bad idea to take one day off to allow your eyes a bit more time to stabilize. By way of reference, however, most patients can drive within 24 hours.
Vision correction surgery is an investment; we get it. That’s why we offer 0% interest-free financing for up to 24 months. LASIK also qualifies for employer flex spending accounts. And, when you compare the cost to new glasses, contacts, prescription sunglasses, and solutions each year, the procedure pays for itself in the long run.
The most important thing when deciding to have LASIK is choosing the right surgeon. If you’re ready to learn more, come see our fellowship-trained, internationally-recognized Dr. Christopher Blanton, who has completed more than35,000 refractive surgeries and will conduct your evaluation personally.
