Lasik vision correction surgery is one of many procedures performed today, to correct vision. Other procedures include; implantable lens, CK, and procedures for presbyopia.
Only a few years ago this type of procedure would only have been a dream, but today it is possible. People are often concerned about the danger of operating on the eye. Although there are still risk of complications, the risk has been minimized by advances in the procedures.
Not all lasik procedures end with patient having 20/20 vision, but the improvement is dramatic and life changing. You will not need prescription lenses of any kind following the procedure.
Most doctors will offer a mild sedative prior to the procedure, to calm your nerves. The procedure is painless, and only takes a couple of minutes on each eye. You can usually be driven home 30 minutes after the procedure. Recovery is generally 2 to 4 days.
Discomfort is very mild, and your vision begins to get better each day during recovery. During the recovery it is important to follow the guidelines set by your doctor to avoid complications.
For the time, money, and effort there is very little offered in the cosmetic medical field that will give more benefits to the patient. Some major cities are also home to some of the pioneers in the field of lasik vision correction.
New York boasts several pioneers in this field. After an extensive research process I located a few doctors that were considered at the top of the field. Finding the right doctor is the key to a great experience through out this process.
