No. Most discount LASIK surgery centers think that LASIK is a “commodity”. If you want to live a Life After LASIK, you should not make the choice of having LASIK based on impulse or cost. Diagnostic tech, surgeon experience, follow up treatment, and laser type should be taking into consideration in a LASIK procedure.
Campus Eye Group offers has no-interest financing for the first two years to make your surgery cost-effective.
Refractive surgeries are intended to eliminate the need for contact lenses or eyeglasses. A 20/20 vision is not guaranteed after a LASIK surgery. We are committed to performing vision correction on patients who are dependent on corrective lenses.
All surgeries have potential risks. Negative reactions from LASIK or PRK are unusual. The probability of having complications from LASIK is under 1 percent.
At Campus Eye Group, we want to ensure that LASIK is right for you. All of your medical history should be shared with the doctor in your first free appointment.
Before your LASIK procedure, you will get eye numbing drops. After your surgery, the doctor will prescribe analgesics if needed. Most patients have little or no pain in the one to two days after the LASIK surgery.
Absolutely. Our surgeons often do LASIK on each eye during one visit.
According to the FDA, LASIK is a useful way of correcting vision. Autoimmune diseases (i.e. rheumatoid arthritis, immune deficiency, chronic dry eye, herpetic eye disease, corneal inflammation, cataracts) increase your likelihood of complications.
Some of LASIK’s temporary side effects are vision overcorrection or undercorrection, dry eyes, double vision, halos, and sunbursts.
The laser itself normally take just a couple of seconds for both eyes. A LASIK procedure can be finished in as few as 10 minutes for each eye, but you should be prepared to stay about 1-1.5 hours in the office.
PRK was the first surgery type to use a laser for astigmatism, hyperopia, and myopia correction. Even if PRK precedes LASIK, it is still common and may be better for some patients. Both procedures differ in eye procedure preparation.
LASIK involves creating a flap on the front corneal surface. The epithelial is lifted for reshaping of the cornea. At the end of a LASIK procedure, the flap is replaced. During a PRK, the epithelial is taken out prior to corneal reshaping. The outermost corneal layer will heal itself after the surgery.
