Get Rid Of Your Reading Glasses – Choose LASIK and Free Your Vision

If you’ve visited your Optometrist because you are suffering from fuzzy or blurred vision, and have been diagnosed with near or far-sightedness, you have several options for vision correction. Eyeglasses and LASIK (laser eye surgery) are two of these options. Here’s how they measure up. • Cost: In the short-term, LASIK costs are much higher than glasses because it is a once-off surgical procedure. However, in the long-term, LASIK is the more cost-effective choice. This is because your glasses will have to be updated at least once a year and frames carry a significant cost. Even if you choose to keep the same frames, your lenses can become very expensive according to the types and thickness you require. In the Florida climate, it’s also best to have a second pair in the form of prescription sunglasses to preserve and protect your eyes. • Comfort: While the surgery does include some discomfort and a few days of recovery time, this is a minor and temporary issue for many patients. Eyeglasses on the other hand can become very uncomfortable and inconvenient for patients, especially if they are finding themselves having to go for multiple adjustments. • Personal style: This is where personal choice becomes important. Many people love their glasses because they are a great way to accessorize and add character to their style, but others prefer to have the advantages of naturally perfect vision that LASIK delivers. • Safety: LASIK and other laser eye surgery procedures have an incredibly low risk of complications, and results are often above what patients expect. In fact, it is the recommended procedure for astronauts, professional athletes and celebrities who suffer with vision impairment because it is so safe.

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 Innovative Technology Is Making Corrective Eye Surgery Even Better

How Innovative Technology Is Making Corrective Eye Surgery Even Better

Laser eye surgery for vision correction has been around for a lot longer than many people realize. In fact, it dates back to the 1970s, where the invention of the excimer laser was first used in vision correction at Colombia University by researcher Stephen L. Trokel. Since then, technology has advanced at a rapid pace, bringing significant changes to the industry and great benefits to patients seeking the very best treatments for their eye disorders and conditions. Reducing risks: Thanks to the advanced technology used at leading eye clinics, including The Laser Center of Coral Gables, eye surgery is safer than ever before. Not only do eye doctors have the experience and equipment to ensure the safest possible experience, they also have the ability to discern which patients are most suited to the different treatment options based on their medical history in order to guarantee the best results. Precision results: With the very high degree of accuracy and stability in cutting-edge lasers, eye surgeons are able to do delicate work with microscopic precision, making treatment more effective and less invasive for the patient. For example, studies have found that cataract surgery done with a laser offers 10 times more precise results than the same treatment done with traditional surgical tools, providing patients with dramatically improved results. Improved recovery time: One of the most common concerns for patients considering eye surgery is the amount of time they will spend recovering. With high-precision laser surgery, patients can return to their normal routine within a fraction of a traditional recovery period. Depending on your lifestyle and the surgery you require, you may recover in a matter of days.
