LASIK Surgery Available for Residents of St. Petersburg, FL, Who Don’t Like Wearing Glasses
Since its introduction to the public in 1992, LASIK surgery has corrected the vision of more than eight million Americans. A quick and minimally-invasive refractive surgery, LASIK 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 St. Peterburg, 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. We have a 100% success rate with LASIK.
LASIK Is a Safe, Outpatient Procedure
LASIK has a low rate of complications. Some of the most common 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. In most cases, patients can expect improved vision—without glasses or contacts—immediately after the procedure. Many patients are able to drive within a week, with vision continuing to improve and stabilize over the next three to six months.
We Also Perform Epi-LASKI
Epi-LASIK is an updated version of LASIK that results in reduced eye discomfort and faster healing. It provides more stability for the cornea and is a better alternative for some patients.
