LASIK

Of all of the refractive surgery procedures available, Lasik surgery is the preferred surgery and used the most by physicians. Lasik is so popular because it is relatively pain free afterwards and you can notice better vision as soon as the next day.

The Lasik eye surgery uses an instrument called a microkeratome that makes a thin, circular flap in the cornea. The flap is folded back by the surgeon who then removes some of your corneal tissue with an excimer laser. This cool ultraviolet beam from this laser removes very minute fragments of tissue from the cornea to reshape it. An added bonus of having your cornea reshaped correctly is that your cornea will be able to focus light into your eye and onto the retina giving you better vision than you had before surgery. Then the flap is replaced back over the corneal tissue.

You can benefit from the Lasik procedure if you are nearsighted or farsighted. The lasers can also correct astigmatism, but few people know about this benefit. You will need to have an eye exam to determine whether you are a good candidate for this type of vision correction and just how much laser ablation you will need.

If you experience dry eye you need to inform your surgeon that you can be treated before your Lasik eye surgery. You should also tell your doctor if you are experiencing any health problem and all medications that you are taking. Next, a map of your cornea will also be created before your surgery with a corneal topographer which will give your surgeon a detailed map of aberrations impairing your vision.

The day of your surgery you will walk in have the surgery and walk out. Don't worry about pain, because the majority of people who have had Lasik surgery state that they don't feel any pain. Your eyes are anesthetized with drops before the procedure. The surgery takes less than five minutes, you're awake during the procedure, and the doctor will give you a mild sedative right before. You will need to have someone go with you who can drive you home when it's all done.

When the procedure is done, you will stay for a short period, and then you will be allowed to leave. It's important to follow the recommendations that your doctor gives you, get adequate rest, fill and use the prescriptions if he gives you any and phone your physician immediately if you experience any problems. What happens after surgery can impact your vision just as much as the surgery itself.

You will probably be okay to return to work the following day, but most doctors recommend that you take a few days off and rest. They also suggest that for the first week you don't participate in any strenuous exercise so that you don't traumatize your eye and deter your healing. You should avoid rubbing your eye because this is a slight chance that you could dislodge the corneal flap. With Lasik surgery, your vision may improve right away or you may experience a gradual improvement over the first few days or weeks.
