LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis. It is a very popular procedure which is used to correct vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.
LASIK is one of the vision surgeries which works by reshaping the cornea (front part of the eye), so that the light gets properly focused onto the retina located in the back of the eye. It reaps benefits for the people who are wearing eyeglasses for a long time or wear glasses with very high power.
Five primary benefits of LASIK surgery are:
- Long lasting result: After following a period of 3 months for the eye to adjust with LASIK and recommended routine suggested by the doctor, the results are expected to be permanent. The corrected eyesight will last throughout the life barring any normal loss of vision due to aging and other illness.
- Quick result and recovery: According to specialists, a patient can return to his/her normal routine within a day after the surgery if he/she is not having any especially dirty and dusty workplace.
- Improved vision: Studies have shown that 85% of patients who underwent LASIK surgery have achieved enhanced eyesight. Patients can enjoy improved vision, shortly after the procedure.
- No more glasses: With LASIK surgery, a person can say goodbye to eyeglasses for the lifetime.
- No more contacts: After LASIK surgery, the patient won’t have to bother about any kind of solutions, crawling around on the floor looking for a lost contacts or sticking finger in eyes. Besides, LASIK surgery can help save a lot of money which we spend on changing costly contact lenses every week/month.
