Understanding LASIK Eye Surgery and How It Can Correct Your Vision

Are you tired of relying on contact lenses or eyeglasses to see clearly? LASIK eye surgery may provide a way to correct your vision without requiring corrective lenses. Seeta Eye is an ophthalmologist near you in Poughkeepsie and Yorktown Heights, NY, that provides LASIK eye surgery to correct refractive vision errors affecting your daily life. Our team is here to tell you about LASIK surgery and how it can correct your vision.

Lasik Surgery

What Is LASIK?

Laser-assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, or LASIK, is an eye procedure that reshapes the cornea. The shape of your cornea affects how rays of light bend when they enter the eye. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism occur when the light incorrectly bends while entering the eye, causing blurry vision at multiple distances. Our ophthalmologist can use LASIK surgery to correct these vision issues and improve your eyesight. While LASIK is a highly effective and safe surgery, this procedure is not for everyone. Our ophthalmologist can determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK after conducting an eye exam.

How LASIK Works

Our ophthalmologist will check your vision, measure your corneas, and look for other eye problems during your consultation. They can schedule you for LASIK surgery once they determine if you are a good candidate. During LASIK, we use eye drops to numb your eyes. Our eye surgeon then uses a laser to make a thin flap in your cornea and reshape this part of your eye.

You may require a shield over your eyes for a few days when sleeping while your eyes heal. You may experience temporary side effects, like discomfort or scratchiness. While LASIK can effectively correct vision errors due to the shape of your cornea, you may still need prescription lenses in some instances. You may require corrective lenses based on the severity of your nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or other health conditions.

Good Candidates for LASIK

Several factors can impact your candidacy for LASIK eye surgery. You need to be at least 18 years old since your eyes continue to develop and change during adolescence. You also should have a stable eye prescription for at least one year. Other factors include having healthy eyes and corneas thick enough for surgery. Severe cases of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism can impact the effectiveness and safety of LASIK. Having severe dry eye symptoms, thin corneas, corneal scars, or some eye diseases are other factors that can make you an unsuitable candidate for LASIK.
