The Basics of LASIK Surgery
Your eyes will be numbed with drops before your surgery, ensuring that you remain comfortable throughout the process. The ophthalmologist will make a thin flap in your corneal tissue, then lift and fold the flap back. Your cornea is then re-shaped using a pre-programmed laser. When the procedure is complete, your surgeon will fold the flap back into position. The flap will heal on its own, without intervention.
Healing from LASIK Surgery
After your LASIK procedure, you can expect a temporary decrease in tear production, and the eyes may feel extremely dry for some time after your surgery. Your optometrist may recommend eyedrops to help ease your discomfort.
You may experience issues with night vision after surgery, which can last from a few days to a few weeks. These issues can include sensitivity to light, glare and halos around bright objects. Healing can take approximately 2 to 3 months, and eventually, your vision will clear.
Ladera Ranch Optometry will be there to help you co-manage the healing process and will arrange regular post-operative care appointments to monitor your progress.
