If you have been considering having LASIK done, you probably have questions you want answered. In addition, while this procedure is a very safe and effective one, it is not necessarily a good idea for everyone. There are qualifications that will either make someone a good or poor candidate. A great way to make the decision in a relaxed and supportive environment is to call us at Eyes On You and schedule our LASIK consultation in Rahway. Any type of surgery, even one done with lasers, is a major choice, so you want to have all the information at hand to make the decision. Let us help.
LASIK is an exciting prospect. Without conventional cutting, stitches, or bandages, your nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism can be corrected to the point of requiring far less reliance on your eyeglasses or contact lenses, or for the luckiest patients, the elimination of corrective lenses entirely. It works by reshaping your cornea with a laser so that light passes through your cornea and strikes the retina at or close to the center, instead of toward the front or the back, as is the case when you are not seeing ideally. Some requirements for this procedure are that you must be at least 18 years of age and not have any previous or current corneal disease. Other circumstances and details will be discussed in more detail during our LASIK consultation in Rahway, including those that apply specifically to your unique circumstances. The procedure has an impressive success rate of about 90%, which inspires confidence. Most patients find they are able to notice improved vision by the next day, and even in some instances as soon as later the same day as surgery.
Our LASIK consultation in Rahway is a great idea for sorting out the plusses and minuses of having this eye surgery and whether it is the right move for you at this time. Call us and schedule one before you make the decision to proceed.
