Is LASIK Surgery Right for You?
If you’ve grown tired of wearing glasses, you may want to consider LASIK surgery. LASIK is a more permanent means of correcting refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. At Orlando Eye Institute, we can help you determine if LASIK is right for you. We offer quality eye care services to residents in Windermere, West Orlando and surrounding communities.
What’s involved in LASIK in Windermere?
LASIK surgery entails the use of a precision laser to reshape the cornea of your eye. In so doing, your ophthalmologist can correct refractive errors in your vision so you can enjoy better sight. LASIK is an outpatient surgery that can take anywhere between 10-15 minutes for both eyes. Your ophthalmologist will put anesthetic eye drops in your eyes so you’ll feel no pain during the procedure. Most people enjoy improved vision almost immediately after surgery.
Is LASIK Right for You?
Not everyone qualifies for LASIK surgery. Before scheduling LASIK in Windermere, we’ll examine your eyes to get a better idea of your visual clarity and to make sure you have no eye conditions or diseases that will conflict with the procedure. You must meet the following requirements to be eligible for LASIK procedures:
- Be a minimum of 18 years of age
- Be in good health with no underlying health issues
- Have good eye health free of eye infections and diseases that can hinder your healing
- Have a stable eye prescription for at least a year
Eye doctors recommend that nursing and pregnant women wait to have LASIK surgery due to fluctuations in their refractive errors.
Benefits of LASIK in Windermere
LASIK surgery offers an alternative to prescription eyewear to improve your sight. The procedure cannot guarantee 20/20 vision for everyone, but most all LASIK patients report marked improvement in their sight.
