Why LASIK is a Revolutionary Procedure
LASIK will correct your vision problem. 96% of patients
report enjoying optimal vision after the procedure.
Numbing drops are also used, so there is no pain to worry
about. No bandages or stitches are required, and vision issues are usually
rectified within hours of the operation.
The risk of complications is also very low, and most
patients will enjoy optimal vision for several years without the need for
enhancements. Recovery time is also fast, with most patients returning to their
normal routine within a few days.
Perhaps best of all, most patients will either no longer
have to wear contacts or eyeglasses or will only need to use them sparingly to
read or see distant objects. LASIK has also become the gold standard in many
eye clinics to treat a myriad of eye disorders.
In recent years, it has also become very affordable, saving
patients thousands of dollars that would have gone towards buying new contacts
or eyeglasses every 2 to 4 years.
