Does LASIK Eye Surgery Really Work?

In layman’s term, LASIK eye surgery refers to laser eye surgery. It is a form of a refractive surgery used to correct myopia, astigmatism, and to remove cataract. It is commonly performed by a licensed ophthalmologist with the use of laser. The purpose of this procedure is to reshape the corneas to improve vision. Before the actual laser surgery, there are several preoperative considerations to take note of, for example a patient should cease wearing soft contact lenses for 5 to 21 days before the actual operation. The actual LASIK surgery is the process of producing a thin flap on the eye, then subsequently folding the flap to modify the tissue underneath using a laser. The flap will then be repositioned as the eye is left to heal, post-op. The procedure is done with the patient awake, but sometimes doctors administer a mild sedative.

Yes - Amazing results

I was really short-sighted since I was 9 years old. Got soft contact lenses when I was 11. Wore them until age 43. Six months after the birth of my last child, my eyesight got even worse for seeing up close as well! So I decided to have Lasik. I know its expensive at first but when you take into account the ongoing costs of glasses, lenses, cleaning products, annoyance factor….I must say that it’s the best thing I ever did. I don’t regret not getting it earlier because technology is so much more advanced now. I’m 51 now and my eyesight is still perfect. The op itself only took 20 minutes, eyes were numbed, a bit weird psychedelic as the laser did its work – felt a bit gritty for a day or so but the day after….to have clear vision was absolutely incredible.

I had LASIK on my eyes in 2003. It was quick and painless. The eyes are blurry for a couple of weeks afterwards. But after that, the results are amazing. Most people do eventually need reading glasses as they get older though.
