Any surgery has risks. However, the risk of complications is less than 1%. We use the most innovative technologies and highest level of safety standards and precautions to help ensure that your surgery is completed with 100% success.
Lasik is a procedure that treats refractive errors by re-shaping the cornea using an excimer laser. It is an outpatient procedure that typically takes about ten minutes. Topical anesthesia is applied and the surgeon creates a flap in the cornea. The flap is lifted to the side and the laser is used to remove a layer of corneal tissue. The flap is then folded back to its normal position. The removal of this tissue reshapes the cornea so light will focus directly onto the retina to produce clear vision.
Patients have reported little or no discomfort during the procedure and have reported improved vision the next day. Some patients experience mild discomfort during the initial recovery period.
