What is LASIK Surgery?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is an advanced refractive eye surgery technique that corrects common vision problems such as:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism. 

The goal of LASIK is to reshape your cornea – the clear front part of your eye – so that light entering your eye can be properly focused, resulting in crisp, clear vision. 

Should you notice any of these symptoms, we warmly invite you to book a FREE LASIK consultation with us at 949-270-6063. Together, we can discuss and discover the most appropriate LASIK treatment options tailored just for you.

Your Journey to Clear Vision

Your LASIK journey begins with a comprehensive consultation where we evaluate your eye health and vision needs. We’ll discuss the benefits of LASIK, potential risks, and what you can expect during and after the procedure.

As you gear up for your LASIK procedure, here are some essential steps to ensure a smooth experience:

  • Understanding the Financial Aspect: Since LASIK is often classified as elective surgery, many insurance providers do not cover the cost. As such, it’s crucial to anticipate and prepare for any out-of-pocket expenses associated with the procedure.
  • Organizing Transportation: Post-procedure, you may experience temporary vision blurriness or residual effects from the administered medication. Hence, we strongly recommend arranging for someone to drive you home after your surgery.
  • Maintaining Eye Hygiene: On the day prior to and on the day of your surgery, it’s vital to refrain from using eye makeup, creams, perfumes, or lotions. To reduce the risk of infection, your doctor may also advise you to clean your eyelashes regularly, ensuring they’re free from debris in the days leading up to your procedure.

During the LASIK procedure, your surgeon will create a thin flap in your cornea, gently lift it, and then reshape your corneal tissue with a precise laser. The flap is then laid back in place where it naturally adheres without the need for stitches. The procedure is typically completed in less than 30 minutes.

  • Anesthetic Application: To ensure a comfortable experience, numbing drops are applied to your eye, and an instrument is used to gently keep your eyelids open.
  • Preparation for Incision: As a suction ring is positioned on your eye to prepare for the creation of the corneal flap, you may experience a slight sensation of pressure, and your vision might momentarily dim.
  • Creation of the Corneal Flap: Your eye surgeon will use a femtosecond laser to create a small, hinged flap on the surface of your eye. This flap is then delicately folded back, granting access to the cornea that needs reshaping.
  • Corneal Reshaping: Utilizing a pre-programmed laser, the surgeon carefully modifies specific parts of your cornea. Each laser pulse removes a minuscule amount of corneal tissue. Once the cornea has been reshaped, the flap is gently laid back in its original position, typically healing naturally without the need for stitches.
  • During the Procedure: Throughout the surgery, you’ll be guided to focus on a light source. This fixation aids in keeping your eye stable as the laser works on your cornea. You may notice a peculiar odor, often likened to burning hair, as the laser interacts with your corneal tissue.
  • Bilateral LASIK: If LASIK surgery is needed for both eyes, our doctor typically perform the procedure on both eyes during the same session.

By meticulously following these steps, we ensure your LASIK surgery at Eyeconic is a successful and comfortable experience.

    • The Initial Hours: Directly following your surgery, it’s normal for your eye to experience sensations like itchiness, grittiness, or a burning feeling, accompanied by some watering. Blurred vision is common at this stage, but rest assured, discomfort is typically minimal, and the recovery of your vision is typically swift.
    • Comfort Measures: To enhance your comfort post-procedure, you may receive pain medication or soothing eye drops. Your doctor may also provide a protective shield for you to wear over your eye at night, safeguarding the healing process.
    • Healing and Vision Stabilization: While you will be able to see post-surgery, your vision may take some time to fully clear. Expect a healing period of approximately one to two months for your vision to stabilize fully. The degree of improvement you can expect often correlates with your pre-surgery vision quality.
    • Follow-up Appointments: We are committed to your successful recovery. Expect a follow-up appointment with your eye doctor one day post-surgery to assess healing and monitor for any complications. Additional check-ins will be scheduled over the first six months post-procedure as per your doctor’s advice.
    • Resuming Activities: Patience is key when it comes to resuming activities like applying eye cosmetics or engaging in strenuous contact sports, swimming, or using hot tubs. Your doctor will provide guidance on the appropriate timeline for these activities.
    • The Results: LASIK surgery has the potential to dramatically enhance your vision, freeing you from the dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Most patients find they no longer need their glasses or contact lenses for the majority of their activities post-LASIK.

    In rare instances, an additional surgery may be required for optimal correction, or some people may find their vision gradually reverts to pre-surgery levels due to certain conditions or abnormal wound healing.

    At Eyeconic we’re with you every step of the way. If you notice any changes in your vision, don’t hesitate to discuss them with your doctor.

Understanding the Potential Complications of LASIK Surgery

While LASIK surgery is generally considered safe and effective, it’s essential to understand that any surgical procedure carries some degree of risk. Potential complications, although rare, can occur.

  • Dry Eyes: Some patients may experience dry eyes for a few months following the procedure. This condition can usually be managed effectively with lubricating eye drops.
  • Glare, Halos, and Double Vision: Post-surgery, you might notice increased light sensitivity, glare, halos around lights, or even double vision. These symptoms generally improve over the first few months.
  • Undercorrections, Overcorrections, Astigmatism: If the laser removes too little or too much tissue from your eye, your vision might not be as clear as expected. Similarly, uneven tissue removal can result in astigmatism. In some cases, additional surgery may be required to achieve optimal vision.
  • Flap Problems: LASIK involves creating a flap in the cornea. In rare cases, this flap can lead to complications such as excess tears, infection, or swelling.
  • Vision Regression: In some cases, a patient’s eyes may slowly return to their preoperative level of vision due to certain conditions, such as abnormal wound healing, hormonal imbalances, or pregnancy.

Remember, the best way to minimize risk and ensure the best possible outcome is to choose a reputable and experienced surgeon. At Eyeconic, we prioritize patient safety and satisfaction. We encourage you to openly discuss any concerns you may have before deciding on the surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

While LASIK involves surgery on your eye, the process is typically not painful. We use numbing eye drops to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Some patients may feel slight pressure, but pain is very rare.

The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for LASIK is to schedule a comprehensive consultation. Ideal candidates are at least 18 years old, have stable vision for at least a year, and have a prescription within the treatable range. Certain medical conditions may affect your eligibility.

The LASIK procedure itself typically takes less than 15 minutes. However, you should plan on being at our clinic for about 2-3 hours on the day of your surgery to allow for preparation and post-operative recovery time.

Most patients notice an immediate improvement in their vision and can return to their normal activities the next day, but it can take several weeks for your vision to fully stabilize.

Most patients no longer need glasses for the majority of their daily activities after LASIK. However, you may still need reading glasses due to age-related changes in your near vision, a condition known as presbyopia.

Yes, the changes made to the cornea during LASIK surgery are permanent. However, it’s important to note that LASIK does not prevent the natural aging process of the eyes. Conditions like presbyopia and cataracts can still occur.

As with any surgical procedure, LASIK has some risks, including dry eyes, glare, halos, and in rare cases, infection, or loss of vision. However, LASIK has a high success rate, and serious complications are rare. We’ll discuss these potential risks with you in detail during your consultation.
