Lasik Eye Surgery

What is LASIK?


LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a commonly used eye surgery to correct vision defects. In this procedure, a laser is used to create a thin flap in the cornea and reshape its curvature to correct vision problems.


Lasic Eye Surgery

Preliminary Evaluation: Determining Suitability


Before LASIK surgery, it's important to undergo a comprehensive evaluation with an eye doctor. During this evaluation, your eye health and suitability for the surgery will be assessed. Your prescription should be stable, and there should be no signs of infection or disease in your eyes.



Preoperative Preparation: Detailed Examination


Before LASIK surgery, your eye doctor will explain the procedure in detail and discuss potential risks. Detailed tests, such as determining your prescription and mapping your cornea, will be conducted.


Surgery Day: Procedure and Recovery


LASIK surgery is usually a quick procedure and is often performed under local anesthesia. A laser is used to create a flap in the cornea and reshape the underlying tissue. After the procedure, patients can usually return home immediately, although it's recommended to have someone drive you.


Recovery Process: Eye Drops and Follow-Up


After LASIK surgery, you may need to use eye drops to support the healing process. Several follow-up visits will be scheduled, and it's important to follow your eye doctor's recommendations.


Postoperative Care: Things to Consider


After LASIK surgery, there are several things to consider for a few weeks. Avoid rubbing your eyes and refrain from strenuous activities. It's also important to use sunglasses and avoid activities such as swimming.
