LASIK Eye Surgery in Miami: Advantages and Disadvantages

LASIK Eye Surgery in Miami: Advantages and Disadvantages

LASIK eye surgery has provided millions of people around the world with the convenience of not being reliant upon contact lenses or glasses and it is one of the most common elective procedures across the country.  At The Laser Center of Coral Gables we specialize in LASIK eye surgery and other vision correction procedures and we are proud to help people obtain the vision they desire without having to wear glasses or contact lenses anymore.

LASIK eye surgery has both advantages and disadvantages, including:

  • Advantages
    • It is able to correct most cases of farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism
    • It is fast and generally painless.  On average, the procedure is over in as little as fifteen minutes.
    • A single LASIK eye surgery session often achieves the desired outcome.
  • Disadvantages
    • Every person heals differently, which means that there is no way to determine the results until each patient is fully healed.
    • In rare cases, it has been shown to make some aspects of patients’ vision worse, such as night vision with halos and glare.
    • It isn’t ideal for patients who don’t have healthy eyes and it may make dry-eye symptoms worse in some patients.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for vision correction and the doctors at The Laser Center of Coral Gables always hold consultations with each person before determining the best course of action.  A consultation will let you know if you are eligible for LASIK eye surgery and the doctosr will be able to give you more information such as expected outcome, best type of treatment and more.

If you’re ready to get rid of your contact lenses and glasses forever and want to learn more about LASIK eye surgery, please contact The Laser Center of Coral Gables today.  We look forward to hearing from you!
