LASIK is a popular form of vision correction that has become very common among those who wear corrective lenses and vision wear. LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that improves the vision of those who wear corrective lenses by removing the need for wearing glasses or contact lenses. LASIK is also used to correct the problems associated with astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia. LASIK is done by laser technology and has a high rate of success, making it one of the most popular forms of vision correction today.
One of the reasons why so many people consider laser surgery is because it is an effective treatment for vision problems related to dry eyes, or conjunctivitis, and cataracts. Some people consider that the first six months after lasik surgery they will experience some degree of discomfort, but after the first six months, most people find that their vision returns to normal. After the first six months, there are only a small number of cases in which vision returns to normal, usually after the age of 20. The majority of vision problems that occur prior to the 6 months that the patient will wear lasik contacts are related to dry eyes or cataracts.
As a result of refractive error, some people have severe nearsightedness and farsightedness, even if they do not have astigmatism. Because some people have either nearsightedness or farsightedness, they often find that their vision is negatively affected, causing them to avoid certain things or to work in a different setting than they would prefer. The condition known as presbyopia makes it difficult for some individuals to read books, view computer screens, or drive at night. Vision care specialists recommend that individuals over the age of 35 wear an eye patch or other corrective eye device in order to maintain appropriate visual clarity while working or driving. Because vision correction has been successful for so many people, lasik surgery may be an option for those who have vision problems.
