What can I expect
during my LASIK surgery?

On the day of surgery, your LASIK specialist will explain the different steps you are about to go through and provide you with all of the necessary post-operative instructions, such as how to use eye drops and when you can get back to your typical day-to-day activities.

Prior to your LASIK procedure, your eyes will be numbed using anesthetic eye drops and you may be offered a mild sedative to help you relax. It’s normal to be a bit anxious before LASIK but most people say they are surprised by how quick it actually is. The procedure generally requires 10 minutes of operating room time, during which the laser is used for less than a minute on each eye.

LASIK recovery

After LASIK surgery, you should plan to have a friend or family member drive you home and you will need to rest for the remainder of the day. You may experience some temporary mild irritation or discomfort, which can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication.

Your doctor will provide you with detailed post-surgical instructions and schedule you for follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. Patients typically resume regular activities within two days.

LASIK results

LASIK patients typically experience improved vision right after surgery, from the moment they sit up in the operating room. Results generally continue to improve in the hours and days afterwards. LASIK has a very high patient satisfaction rate, and many patients love the sense of freedom that they feel from no longer requiring glasses or contacts.

Many LASIK patients feel more confident and appreciate the convenience that LASIK can bring to their lives.
