4 Great Benefits of LASIK

by Sep 4, 2017

While eyeglasses and contact lenses are effective vision correction options, the Neal Eye Group proudly offers consultation services for another great alternative: LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), one of the most revolutionary innovations in the visual health field. Read on as we share four exceptional benefits it provides:

4 Great Benefits of LASIK

1. Enhanced Visual Acuity

We begin by numbing your eye to ensure your comfort, and then use a laser excimer to create a thin flap on your cornea. We then retract this flap and remove the unnecessary corneal tissue that causes your refractive error. Afterward, we position the flap in its original place. This procedure corrects the structural infirmities in your eyes that were causing your vision problems, giving you better visual acuity.

2. Immediate Effects

LASIK is a quick procedure, taking about 15 minutes per eye. Your trusted eye doctor explains that you can enjoy the effects of clear vision almost immediately after the procedure, making it a convenient and effective option for many patients.

3. Better Quality of Life

LASIK is a great way to regain independence over your daily activities. With your improved eyesight, you will have an easier time seeing objects and finishing your everyday tasks. It also gives you a feeling of normalcy since it reduces your need to use prescription eyewear.

4. Long-Lasting Solution

Studies show that LASIK effectively prevents progression of most refractive errors, giving you many years’ worth of improved vision. It is also positively associated with a reduced reliance on using other corrective eyewear, contributing to its high success rate. We recommend undergoing a  comprehensive eye exam sometime after the procedure to evaluate its effectiveness.
