LASIK vision correction is one of the safest and most efficient ways to improve vision and eliminate the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. During the procedure, a laser is used to create a thin flap that is folded back, allowing the doctor to use the laser to reshape the surface of the cornea. Once the cornea's shape has been altered, the flap is replaced. Within a few minutes, the flap naturally seals itself and the eye will begin to heal. The procedure utilizes wavefront mapping technology that helps to accurately measure the eye so the doctor can perform the corrections that are most beneficial. LASIK procedures are normally performed after a person's vision has stabilized. This eliminates the need for further procedures in the future.
LASIK vision correction procedures are beneficial for individuals who have vision problems that can easily be corrected through minor alterations to the curvature of the cornea. The wavefront technology used in LASIK procedures allows for fewer side effects and more accurate vision correction. LASIK procedures are ideal for individuals who live active lives and are often slowed down by the use of glasses or the maintenance of contact lenses. LASIK procedures eliminate the need for prescription eyewear and allow for the use of protective eyewear when it's needed. Until a person's vision stabilizes, doctors will normally not recommend LASIK.
Millions of people around the world can attest to the many benefits of LASIK. Once the procedure has been performed and the eyes allowed to heal sufficiently, the patient will no longer need prescription contact lenses or eyeglasses. That means no more showers without seeing the soap, worrying about broken frames or torn or lost contact lenses.
