Frequently Asked Questions
Did it hurt?
“It was quick, easy and not much discomfort. My doctor prepared me for the procedure.”
How long did it take?
“It took about 10 minutes; that’s it and I was done. You don’t need to be afraid. It’s so worth it.”
Were you awake?
“Yes, but it was easy, painless and quick.” Your eye doctor will talk you through the procedure. If you are really nervous or concerned about being awake, you can ask for something to help put you at ease.
What if I can’t keep my eye open and stay still? What if I move my head?
Your eye doctor will help to ensure you are properly positioned for the treatment. Additionally, the laser is designed to track your eye throughout the procedure to provide you with good outcomes.
I’m afraid it won’t work or something will go wrong.
Like all surgical procedures, Laser Vision Correction carries risk. The most common risks of LASIK vision correction surgery with refractive lasers include dry eye syndrome; the possible need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery; visual symptoms including halos, glare, starbursts, and double vision; and loss of vision. The occurrence of these side effects is very low for appropriate candidates—a recent study showed that at three months, 87% of patients reported “no change or better” compared to their preoperative vision with glasses.¹ Most complications can be treated and resolved. Your eye doctor will talk to you about your unique circumstances and what you can expect.
I’m afraid it’ll wear off.
The surgical correction is permanent. It does not wear off. But it is important to realize that a person’s eye can still change, such as with aging. Your doctor can discuss this with you and advise whether Laser Vision Correction is suitable for your needs.
