LASIK

LASIK eye surgery allows patients to see clearly without wearing glasses or contact lenses. At ABQ Vision Care, we have been providing our patients with reliable pre- and post-LASIK care for many years. Read on to learn more about the benefits of LASIK eye surgery and who qualifies for it.

Understanding Laser Eye Surgery

LASIK is an acronym for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. It employs the wonders of the laser, which was developed more than 60 years ago and has since been used in many areas of medicine. Laser eye surgery came into wide use in the 1990s. It is today used in the eye care field to treat common vision issues including nearsightedness and farsightedness. However, it can also be useful in those who suffer from astigmatism, which creates blurred vision at any distance. LASIK has proven popular for those who feel uncomfortable about the way they look in eyeglasses and who would rather avoid the problems associated with wearing contact lenses.

What to Expect from a Laser Optometry Procedure

LASIK surgery is best suited for adults with moderate nearsightedness and who are in generally good health with no other serious vision disorders. Each patient will first be given an eye examination to determine the nature of the problem and if LASIK is an appropriate treatment method. Since focusing disorders are usually related to an improper eyeball shape, the laser can be used to make the physical changes needed to achieve clear vision.

The procedure itself is normally completed in less than half an hour, with some patients reporting improved vision in only a few days. Satisfaction rates among those who undergo the treatment are well above 90 percent. Additionally, the effects of LASIK surgery can last for years or even decades.
