Laser eye surgery is becoming increasingly popular among people today, the option to have 20/20 vision again is becoming very tempting for many. All those years of wearing glasses or contact lenses and now they feel like they will have a new lease of life and confidence by undergoing the iLasik Procedure. A few years ago, it may have seemed impossible to get your eyesight back with the option of laser surgery but technology and science has come so far that almost anything is possible and having perfect vision again is no longer a mere dream, it can become a reality.
So, what is involved then in having laser eye surgery? Laser eye surgery is so safe and does not really provide any risks to your health. It may not be one hundred percent efficient in all cases but a trained and highly skilled Optometrist will be able to advise those with the matching criteria for being eligible for laser eye surgery to move forward with it. Unfortunately, there are some candidates who do not quite fit the criteria to be eligible and an optometrist will advise against it so that the person will not be disappointed with the results but those that do meet the criteria will be blown away by what having laser eye surgery can achieve. An experience of someone that has recently had laser eye surgery shows just how quickly and imminent the results are. They were asked to look at a clock which appeared blurry with their current vision and when they had received the laser treatment in the same room they were again asked by the optometrist to look at the clock and read the time and they could see it clear as day. The results of that laser eye surgery were that quick. With obvious recovery time for the eyes to become les red and a feeling of irritation for a few days where goggles were needed but other than that the vision was repaired through laser eye surgery. What more could you ask for, a quick and productive procedure?
Your optometrist will ensure full comfort and they will fully explain everything that will happen before, during and after your surgery so there will be no surprises along the way and you will have confidence that you are in safe hands. The full procedure will last about 20 minutes from beginning to end although you will be required to stay for a little while longer just to be sure that everything has gone to plan and then you can be on your way. When you take your steps out from the procedure room you will walk out and a new world will be open to you. Your own eyes now able to see the vibrant colors around, the full body of a tree rather than the shape or silhouette that you were able to see before. Laser eye surgery is no doubt life changing and going ahead with it will be the best decision you have made for a long time.
