Common Questions About LASIK Surgery
  • Compared to PRK or LASEK, LASIK healing times are significantly shorter, with most LASIK patients returning to work and normal life very shortly after their LASIK procedures. Noticeable vision improvement after LASIK is virtually overnight, and it’s very common to treat both eyes on the same day.

  • Custom LASIK surgery can correct almost any refractive vision condition, so you’re likely a candidate. Conditions include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism (football shaped cornea).

  • Although there is no guarantee, most NVISION patients who receive laser vision correction surgery do attain 20/20 vision. Typically, NVISION patients receive the very best corrected vision they have when wearing glasses or contacts, only they now have it without the need for either one.

  • The first and most important aspect to understand is that LASIK is not performed with just one technique or technology. At NVISION we utilize an all-laser approach, creating the corneal flap with a state-of-the-art Femtosecond Laser, which is significantly safer than a mechanical blade approach used at some other clinics. More importantly, NVISION utilizes highly advanced excimer lasers with anti-glare patterns to provide not only incredible day vision quality but also night vision. NVISION surgeons have also been leaders in both wavefront-guided and topography-guided treatments.

  • The best way to determine if laser vision correction surgery is right for you is to start with an eye exam by your optometrist or ophthalmologist. The doctor will examine your eyes and determine if you have a prescription suitable for laser vision correction surgery. If your doctor is unfamiliar with LASIK, we are happy to provide a complimentary consultation. At NVISION, our doctors consider each patient’s unique needs in making recommendations.

  • It’s important to follow the specific plan that your surgeon will give you, because every patient and procedure is different. Most patients can expect this approximate timeline: After 24 hours, it’s usually fine to return to work and resume normal daily activities. Once examined by your doctor the next morning, most patients are cleared to resume driving. By the end of the first week, patients may resume exercise and wear eye makeup. Patients should wait one month to return to contact sports.
