Is LASIK Eye Surgery for You?
Tens of millions of men and women have successfully undergone LASIK eye surgery, yet many who could benefit from this vision-correcting procedure remain hesitant to take the next step and schedule a visit with a board-certified ophthalmologist for an evaluation.
So, is LASIK eye surgery for you? If you suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, the answer is more than likely yes.
The top LASIK surgeons at Global Laser Vision, Southern California’s premier locations for LASIK eye surgery, invite you to come in for an extensive evaluation in order to determine if LASIK or any refractive surgery is right for you. A caring professional will measure a number of factors including – but not limited to – the thickness of your corneas, pupil size and curvature of the eye.
According to WebMD.com, there are plenty of good reasons to undergo LASIK eye surgery. For starters, the procedure is a success for a resounding 96 percent of patients.
“After having LASIK, most patients have a dramatic reduction in eyeglass or contact lens dependence and many patients no longer need them at all,” WebMD notes.
The ultimate goal, of course, goal is to provide patients with the best vision possible.
The Web site of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration also provides insightful information for those contemplating LASIK eye surgery.
The USDA explains that LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. This procedure involves an excimer laser that permanently alters the shape of your cornea – the clear covering of your eye.
A LASIK specialist painlessly creates a flap in your cornea. He then forms a hinge at one end of this flap. Once the flap is folded back, the specialist accesses the middle section of your cornea. He then uses his laser to re-sculpt this area known as the stroma. The end result is just about always much-improved vision.
