If you are becoming a parent for the first time, boundless joy lies ahead of you. Boundless joy and a whole lot of work. A whole lot of work and, for people with glasses, a near constant struggle to keep tiny hands from prying them away from your face. Those same tiny hands, when successful, can bend and break frames, goo up lenses, and otherwise make wearing glasses incredibly inconvenient. Wouldn’t freedom from glasses be more suitable for your new adventure?
LASIK is a time-tested and highly effective way to create optimal vision that does not require prescription eyewear. With LASIK, our Poughkeepsie eye doctors gently reshape corneal tissue to eliminate refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. In just one short procedure you can find permanent freedom from glasses and contact lenses, enabling you to focus – in more ways than one – on enjoying your time with your little one.
How Long Does it Take to Recover from LASIK?
Recovery from LASIK is relatively short, though yours will be as unique as your eyes. For most people, work can be resumed within 24-48 hours, but complete vision correction may take a bit longer.
Your eyes will continue to adjust to their new shape over a three to six-month period, though clear vision should be achieved well before the half-year mark. During this time, you will continue to visit our Fishkill or Poughkeepsie office for evaluations and answers to any questions that have arisen. During these visits, we will cover steps you can take to speed recovery and reduce risks for any LASIK complications.
If you are pregnant, you will need to wait until after your baby is born to undergo LASIK. However, thanks to the short recovery period, you should be well on your way to perfect vision long before your baby develops the skills to snatch your glasses off of your face. During your LASIK consultation, your LASIK surgeon will discuss timelines with you in greater detail.
