Eye Laser Surgery

Do you have vision problems such as a refractive error, myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism? If so then eye laser surgery may be for you. There are a variety of surgical applications being performed today to correct vision problems.

Different types of eye laser surgery

• PRK - photoreactive keratectomy is the original laser eye surgery and is still preferred by a few surgeons

• Custom Waverfront LASIK

• Epi-LASIK

• LASEK

• IntraLase ‘Bladeless' LASIK

• Presby LASIK

• Corneal Onlays/Inlays

Are you a good candidate for Laser surgery?

• You must be 18 for VISX laser and 21 for Summit because your eyes are still growing.

• Are your eyes healthy without any retinal problems, corneal scars, or any other eye diseases?

• Do you have mild to moderate myopia?

• Can you afford this treatment since it will likely not be covered by your insurance policy?

Who shouldn't have eye laser surgery?

If you have glaucoma, diabetes, uncontrolled vascular disease, cornea or retina disease or other ongoing medical conditions then laser surgery is not for you. Because the refraction of your eye changes during pregnancy, if you are pregnant you shouldn't have this surgery. If you are considering this surgery be sure to have a complete physical examination with your physician.

Because the surgeon anesthetizes the cornea and year with drops before surgery there is minimal discomfort. Some people say that they have a scratch feeling, but that's it. And there is usually minor irritation when the anesthetic wears off.

Depending on the type of correction that you require, laser treatment takes only about 15 to 30 seconds. And in most cases recovery is minimal and patients usually drive themselves home after a half hour recovery time. You will begin to notice an improvement in your vision within 3 to 5 days following surgery.

You should be able to return to work after eye laser surgery within 1 to 3 days, but if you don't feel up to it, don't push it. However, the majority of people who have had laser surgery return to normal activities the following day after surgery.
