Tips For Making Your LASIK Recovery More Comfortable

Tips For Making Your LASIK Recovery More Comfortable

LASIK eye surgery is a popular procedure, and it’s not difficult to see why. Not only is it more affordable than other long-term vision correction solutions like eye glasses and contact lenses, it delivers completely natural sight and peace of mind. As rewarding as LASIK is, it’s important to remember that it is a surgical procedure and you will need to take a few days to let your eyes recover and heal. Here is some advice for making this time more comfortable. • Don’t rub your eyes: Some irritation and discomfort should be expected as your eyes heal, but rubbing or touching your eyes in any way can hurt your eyes. This can cause damage to your eyes, pain and a follow up procedure with your doctor, so be sure to keep your hands and anything else far away from your eyes. • Use your medication: Your eye surgeon will prescribe medication in the form of eye drops for you to use during your recovery. These will help the eye heal faster as well as reduce discomfort. • Sleep: Immediately after your procedure, the best possible thing to do is relax and sleep in a dark room. You will be wearing protective eyewear as your eyes will feel very sensitive and by resting and sleeping through to the next morning, you will see and feel a great improvement. • Stay in a clean, healthy environment: After laser eye surgery, your eyes will be sensitive to contaminants in the air, so it’s best to stay away from smoky rooms, dusty environments and areas with chemical vapors in the air. While your eyes will become less sensitive after the initial 3-4 days after surgery, they can continue healing for up to 3 months after the procedure. • Take it easy: While this surgery allows you to return to work and normal life after just a few days, it’s recommended that you take it easy for the following few weeks. Things to avoid include gym saunas and pools as they are a bacteria risk, contact and extreme sports. You should also wear UVA/UVB protective sunglasses at all times while outdoors.

How To Finance LASIK Eye Surgery

How To Finance LASIK Eye Surgery

Although LASIK eye surgery is more affordable in the long-term than eyeglasses or contact lenses, the single cost of the procedure can put many potential candidates off from achieving near perfect vision. Here are some ways to consider in financing your LASIK procedure: • Use your tax refund: State and federal tax refunds can be a great help in affording LASIK. What better use for your refund than investing in yourself. • Personal savings: While this is the simplest way to get laser eye surgery, it is often a good way to save over time in small amounts. However, this also means that you may have to put off surgery for months. • Credit card: We also offer Wells Fargo Health Advantage® credit card, which provides special payment terms through approved credit. • Medical insurance: While most health plan providers do not cover LASIK, The Laser Center of Coral Gables is able to offer significant benefits to TruVision members, which allows you to have LASIK at a significant discount.

How To Prepare For Your LASIK Procedure

How To Prepare For Your LASIK Procedure

LASIK eye surgery, like any surgery, requires that patients make certain preparations in advance of the procedure. Although this isn’t considered to be a major surgery and doesn’t require patients to stay in a hospital for any length of time, it’s still important that you prepare yourself properly. Here’s what you need to do: Ask any questions ahead of time: If you have any questions or concerns, or want to know more about the procedure, be sure to ask your eye doctor during your consultation or at any time before your surgery. This way, you’ll know exactly what to expect before, during and after the procedure. Be clear about your payment plan: Although it is more affordable than ever before, LASIK uses cutting-edge technology to deliver the best and safest results in eye care. Speak to your medical insurance company about whether or not they cover the cost of LASIK and, if you need additional assistance, speak to the clinic about an affordable financing plan. Stop wearing contact lenses: Due to the way they fit onto your eyes, contact lenses can change the shape of your cornea. Your eye doctor will advise you on when to stop wearing your contacts so that your natural eye shape is restored before the procedure can go ahead. Stop wearing eye makeup: In the days leading up to your surgery, your eye doctor will advise you to stop wearing eye makeup, lotions, perfumes and any other products that can lead to eye irritation and infection. Organize a ride home: LASIK is a quick procedure that doesn’t require you to stay over at the clinic, however, you will not be able to drive yourself home. This is because you will have blurred vision and still feel the affects of the medicine given to you during surgery. You will need a friend or family member to collect you from the clinic and drive you home to rest and recover.

We will give you a full assessment, answer any questions you have about LASIK eye surgery and talk to you about our extremely affordable financing options.

5 Reasons Why You Should Get LASIK This New Year!

5 Reasons Why You Should Get LASIK This New Year!

It’s more affordable than ever before: While LASIK eye surgery is a significant financial investment, the cost of the procedure has steadily decreased even as the technology has continued to become even more effective. Set against the cost of having to regularly purchase new glasses and contact lenses, this cost makes even more financial sense.   More financial assistance is available: Medical aid programs have started to realize that LASIK just makes more sense, both financially and health-wise. In addition, leading eye surgery clinics like The Laser Center of Coral Gables offer very affordable financing solutions as well as limited time financing specials to make this procedure even more accessible to you.   Achieve beyond 20/20 vision: The state-of-the-art technology used in LASIK procedures is so effective that each and every procedure is fully customized to each patient’s needs. Through custom-designed LASIK flaps and precise levels of ablation frequency, we can help our patients get the best possible results.   This means that the majority of our patients see 20/20 or better after their treatment.   Reduce your risks to eye health: Other vision solutions, most notably contact lenses, carry a risk to your eye health. If stored incorrectly, you can easily contract serious eye infections through your contacts and the FDA has increasingly posted advisories linked to concerns over long-term contact lens wear. With LASIK, your eyes require a far less regular level of care that doesn’t carry the same risks.   See naturally: For many people, the most important reason for choosing contact lenses over glasses is that you get more natural vision.       LASIK takes this even further.       You can see when you wake up, you can live a more active lifestyle and never have to worry about losing a contact ever again.   Get A Free Eye Exam And See If You Qualify At The Laser Center of Coral Gables, all of our clients qualify for a free eye exam and consultation.
