What Is LASIK?

LASIK eye surgery is a laser refractive surgery that is performed to correct vision problems. LASIK seeks to correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism

During your consultation, our team at McCauley Celin Eyecare Associates will conduct a thorough evaluation of your eyes and vision that includes: 

Following your comprehensive pre-surgery evaluation, our team will explain the next steps and prepare you for LASIK eye surgery with your surgeon.

The LASIK Eye Surgery Process

LASIK eye surgery is the most commonly performed vision-correcting surgery currently available. LASIK can remove the need for visual aides and offer improved vision without having to worry about your prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.

LASIK Surgery

In eyes with normal vision, the cornea bends light onto the retina at the back of the eye with precision. When dealing with refractive errors such as myopia or hyperopia, that light gets distorted and results in blurry vision.

LASIK surgery is often completed in 30 minutes or less, and your surgeon will usually use numbing drops in your eyes and an instrument to hold your eyes open.

During your LASIK surgery, your surgeon will use a special laser to change the shape of your cornea with precision to improve your vision. Your surgeon uses the laser to cut a small flap away from the front of your eye—folding this flap back allows your surgeon to access your cornea and reshape it.

When the procedure is complete, your surgeon will adjust the flap back into place and cover the area where the corneal tissue was removed.

Your eyes may itch, burn, or water following your LASIK procedure. This reaction is normal, and you should be able to recover your vision quickly as your eyes heal. Your eye doctor can prescribe pain medication or eyedrops you may need to help with symptoms of dry eye and swelling following surgery.

It generally takes about 2 to 3 months following your LASIK procedure for your eyes to fully heal and your vision to stabilize. Although the recovery period spans a few months, you’ll be able to resume everyday activities very quickly following the procedure.
