LASIK before Spring Break? All your LASIK questions answered.
If you’re like us, you’re already thinking about how amazing spring break will be. And if you are in south Florida like us, you will likely be hanging near the water, maybe even ON the water, on a boat, snorkeling, in a beach, by a pool…got you in the mood yet?
Well, none of the above is very fun when you have to deal with contacts getting dry or having to deal with glasses. We can guarantee you would MUCH rather snorkel without having to worry about either of the two!
So we are here to share that LASIK can get you to Spring Break or even summer without any worries.
Our latest “Common Questions” page on our new website’s LASIK section answers a ton of the questions we hear from patients like you every day.
Click here for the full list, but here are the top 3:
HOW LONG DOES THE LASER VISION CORRECTION PROCEDURE TAKE?
The whole procedure takes about 20-30 minutes for two eyes. This includes anesthesia to the eye(s), creating the flap and performing the laser treatment.
WHEN CAN I RETURN TO WORK?
It depends on your occupation. Most patients go back to work and resume their daily activities within one to three days following LASIK. Your doctor will discuss any activities you should avoid immediately after your treatment.
WHAT IF MY EYE MOVES DURING THE PROCEDURE?
The VISX STAR S4™ Excimer Laser has a tracking system which follows the eye during the laser treatment. If any large eye movements occur, the laser automatically stops. Once the eye is repositioned the physician will resume the laser treatment to the appropriate area of the cornea.
