Does Lasik Eye Surgery Really Work?

Does Lasik Eye Surgery Really Work?

When seeking to get perfect laser vision correction, just like in looking for any remedy for an illness, people often question the procedure’s effectiveness. Does it really work?

Laser vision correction or Lasik surgery has been around for at least a decade and it has gone through many years of testing and use. Still, asking of its effectiveness remains a valid question. What research has shown is that laser vision correction has been useful for patients suffering from different eye issues such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), as well as astigmatism. Our Lasik Guru has helped people suffering from all vision disorders. His practice is established in Beverly Hills and also serves all of the Los Angeles population. Many of his patients have had their lives greatly improved by his vision correction procedures.

So, for the question “Does lLasik Eye Surgery work?”, the answer is a big, “Yes! Lasik Eye Surgery works in the hands of Dr. Rajesh Khanna, Trusted Lasik Authority.” However, it may not be for everyone.

What patients need to know is that although Lasik eye surgery is painless, it does not mean it is a one size fits all kind of cure and it does not give out instant effects. Here are some points to consider if you are hoping to get Lasik surgery done:

•Candidates for laser vision correction have to go through several tests to ensure that they are fit for Lasik surgery. In our Beverly Hills practice a significant percentage of about 30% of the candidates are deemed to be unfit for the Lasik eye procedure. We can offer them other vision correction procedures like Visian ICL, Intacs or Pi in Eye.

•There are many do’s and don’ts after Lasik surgery. People do not just walk out of the clinic or laser eye center having eyes that are good as new. It takes two weeks to a month to get to 100% normal functioning since post-surgery patients are not allowed to have too much light, cannot wear makeup, and cannot let anything enter the eye. Especially if you have not worn eyeglasses to correct your vision disorder the brain will take longer to adjust to the new vision.

•Aside from ophthalmologist exams, the overall health of the patient has to also be considered before surgery. Arthritis, Diabetes, certain medicines and dental issues may have to be looked at.

•There are some rare cases wherein Lasik surgery did not become as successful because patients failed to follow doctor’s orders. Usually this involves rubbing the eyes and causing the flap to get wrinkled or develop striae. Sometimes it may be infections due to improper eye care. These patients than seek out a leading Lasik authority.
