Benefits of LASIK

LASIK, which is an acronym for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, goes by several names, including laser vision correction and laser eye surgery. Eye Q Premium Laser offers individuals in Edmonton laser eye surgery to correct the eye’s refractive error that is causing hyperopia, myopia or astigmatism. By undergoing LASIK in Edmonton, you can improve your vision and greatly reduce — if not completely eliminate — your daily dependence on prescription glasses or contact lenses.

Details About the Benefits LASIK Provides

By undergoing laser vision correction in Edmonton with Dr. Joseph Leong-Sit and his expert team, you will experience the following benefits:

Improved vision. Laser vision correction surgery is an effective way to improve poor eyesight characterized as farsightedness, nearsightedness and / or astigmatism. In fact, about 95 percent of individuals who undergo laser eye surgery worldwide are satisfied with their visual results from LASIK.  Also, a strong majority of LASIK patients achieve 20/20 vision or better following conventional laser eye surgery. In addition, 98 percent of patients who undergo advanced Custom Femto LASIK achieve 20/20 vision or better without the use of glasses or contact lenses.

No need for stitches or bandages. With laser eye surgery, the surgeon makes a flap in the cornea to access the underlying corneal tissue for vision correction. After the surgeon is finished correcting the eye’s refractive error, the corneal flap is placed back in its original position, where it naturally re-bonds to the eye without the need for bothersome stitches, or even a bandage.

Long-lasting visual results. Immediately following your laser vision correction procedure, you may experience a stabilization period that lasts about three months. After this stabilization period, you can expect your LASIK results to be permanent. Aside from the impact that the natural aging process, external trauma or a certain illness can have on your vision, your improved eyesight should last a lifetime.

A quick recovery period and fast results. Although you will not be able to drive right after laser eye surgery and will need someone to drive you to and from your laser vision correction procedure, you should notice an improvement in your vision within 24 to 48 hours. Generally, patients can return to work or their usual activities at this time. Imagine: You could have almost-perfect, if not perfect, vision within one day of having LASIK surgery!

A greatly reduced dependency on prescription eyewear. With laser vision correction surgery, you can greatly reduce or completely eliminate your everyday reliance on glasses or contact lenses. This means LASIK patients can read a book or go running, swimming or cycling without having to put on their glasses or insert their contact lenses first!
