LASIK Surgery Available for Safety Harbor, FL, Residents Who Don’t Like Glasses
LASIK surgery has corrected the vision of more than 8 million Americans since it was introduced in 1992. It’s a quick and minimally-invasive refractive surgery that reshapes the cornea to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness, or astigmatism. Many LASIK patients have achieved 20/15 vision or better, eliminating their need for eyeglasses or contacts. If you are a Safety Harbor, Florida, resident who wants to enjoy a more active lifestyle free from worrying about losing your eyeglasses or having enough contact lenses on hand, consider LASIK at St. Michael’s Eye & Laser Institute in Largo. We have a 100% success rate with LASIK.
LASIK Is a Safe, Outpatient Procedure
LASIK is a relatively painless outpatient procedure with a low rate of complications. Some of the most common LASIK side effects, such as a mild burning sensation, dry eye, and vision glare, are almost always temporary and usually resolve themselves within several weeks of surgery. Most patients can expect improved vision—without glasses or contacts—immediately after the procedure, and many are able to drive within a week as their vision continues to improve and stabilize.
Here a few ways you can increase your chance of having a successful LASIK surgery:
- Choose an experienced LASIK surgeon
- Prioritize advanced technology and the reputation of a vision center above cost
- Follow all presurgical and postsurgical instructions and attend all follow-up appointments
