LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) eye surgery is truly a revolutionary and very effective procedure for correcting your vision, and has gained massive popularity among prominent sports figures, actors, and other celebrities. Houston LASIK Vision Center is a eye care center offering refractive surgery that corrects the main vision problems people experience on a day to day basis which are typically nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Most people are surprised to learn that a completely sick procedure only takes about 15 minutes. During this time a very thin flap is created in the cornea to allow the invisible pulses of laser energy to reshape any inaccuracies.
Once the laser corneal reshaping phase is complete, your eyes surgeon will delicately lay the corneal flap back into its original position. Your eye is a very fast healing organ and there are no need for stitches As they will steal on their own with the help of prescription eye drops. At this point you are free to go home and rest while the healing takes place. We find that most of our patients experience about 90% vision correction overnight and return to work the very next day. On average, the complete healing process for the procedure can take anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks.
Houston eye surgery can be an incredibly life enhancing procedure when performed on the right person, however not everyone is a good candidate. Although most adults over 18 years of age that suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are potential candidates for LASIK eye surgery. One of the most important steps of the process is to determine if LASIK in Houston is right for you. Our LASIK surgeon offers FREE Houston LASIK screenings to help you know if you would make a good candidate for laser eye surgery.
