Lasik eye surgery reshapes your cornea to allow light to pass through them with the proper focus. This form of laser vision correction remedies nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. In most cases, you’ll be able to throw your glasses or contacts away once you’ve recovered from the procedure. Improvements are seen as soon as 24 hours after you leave the office.
The basic LASIK procedure involves creating a flap in your cornea. The underlying tissue is then treated with a laser to change its shape. Afterward, the flap is placed back over the treated area and the eye is allowed to heal. Best of all, new methods allow the flap to be created without the use of any kind of knife, allowing for a blade-free, all laser Lasik procedure.
Thanks to advances in this procedure, it is very safe and the complication rate is low. Still, it is a form of surgery, so there is a slight risk involved. Before performing the procedure, Dr. Behler will give you and your eyes a thorough examination to make sure you’re a good candidate for the operation.
