Should You Have Laser Eye Surgery?

If you are tired of wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses, you may wonder what all the fuss surrounding LASIK eye surgery is about.  This eye surgery has a phenomenal track record and is the most commonly performed elective surgery in the US.  However, LASIK surgery isn’t necessarily for everyone.

This type of eye surgery is a form of refractive surgery that is safe and can have permanent vision correction.  During the procedure an eye surgeon will create a flap in the cornea.  The surgeon will then use a laser to reshape the cornea and in the process correct any focusing problems that the eye may suffer from.

When is LASIK eye surgery a good idea?

LASIK eye surgery is a great option for people who suffer from a moderate degree of:

  • Farsightedness:  Hyperopia is a condition in which the patient can see distant objects clearly, but experience nearby objects as being blurry.
  • Nearsightedness:  Myopia is the condition in which nearby objects can be seen clearly, but distant objects are blurry.
  • Astigmatism:  This condition causes overall blurry vision, both near and far.

A good surgical outcome will depend in large part on careful evaluation of your eyes before you have the surgery.
