One type of eye disorder that is not commonly seen but still affects many people is the loss of vision caused by cataracts, also called glaucoma. This can have devastating effects on a person’s life and can sometimes cause the inability to drive a car or handle other high-risk jobs.
Because of the risks involved in having a cataract removed surgically, many people are opting for LASIK or laser vision correction. In most cases, if the eye doctor determines the condition be present then they will recommend LASIK. Lasik is a form of LASIK, and it is performed by reshaping a corneal flap and the flap surrounding it. The surgeon removes the original corneal flap and reverts to the new corneal flap. There is no need to open the eye, making the procedure much less invasive.
LASIK or laser vision correction is effective in correcting cataracts, but not everyone can afford it. LASIK eye surgery is more expensive than regular glasses. The price of these surgeries varies based on the state of health and the location where you are being treated.
There are some cases where having LASIK is not an option, because the patient has vision improvement from prescription glasses or contact lenses. If your vision is impaired, you may still want to consider LASIK surgery for your safety and your convenience.
If you are considering this procedure, you should schedule an eye doctor to examine you. Ask for a free evaluation to determine whether LASIK is right for you. LASIK eye doctors use special instruments to assess each eye to see how well it can handle vision correction without glasses. They are aware of the risks involved and will discuss all of them with you, so you don’t have to worry about them.
When comparing LASIK surgery with glasses, a few things should be kept in mind: LASIK surgery is much more painful, but it often is not as uncomfortable as wearing glasses. You should also realize that there is no pain with the LASIK surgery, even if it is your first experience.
Your doctor will determine whether you qualify for the procedure, but it will depend on how bad your vision is and how bad it is and how far your vision has deteriorated. You will need to have another eye exam to make sure that the eye doctor is actually recommending LASIK to you.
After your eye doctor evaluates your eyes, he or she will recommend a certain level of correction. Then the LASIK surgery and the recovery will begin.
After the surgery, you can expect a recovery period. It is important to note that the recovery time depends on how you recover. Some people recover much faster than others do. Your eye doctor will explain this to you when you are first talking about LASIK.
During the recovery period, you can expect to wear eyeglasses to provide you with comfort during the recovery period. Your eyes will feel a bit sore after the procedure. However, if you follow the healing steps you will find that they are completely fine. After the procedure, your vision may be blurry, but it will improve.
Once your eyes feel fine, you can go home and tell your eye doctor how you felt about the procedure. After a few weeks or months, you can return to wearing glasses.
You will have to continue to tell your doctor about your eye problem after your recovery period. Even after the surgery, your eye doctor will want to talk to you and check on your vision to make sure that you are able to drive without glasses.
If you choose to go back to glasses, you will need to have your eye doctor re-evaluate your eyes at least every 6 months to a year. At first, you may be prescribed lenses to correct any problems that have developed. You will need to use these lenses for a longer period of time than LASIK surgery.
