First, discover the answers to frequently asked questions about LASEK:
How does LASEK work?
With ocular technology, Eyesight Associate surgeons reshape your cornea with the use of lasers. This enables your eye to accurately refract light onto your retina. (This procedure is very similar to the PRK procedure.)
Is it permanent?
LASEK is relatively new; however, the results have been seen as permanent. The reasons why results may falter are due to eye changes that occur naturally such as glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration.
What are the benefits of this procedure?
This procedure has a plethora of benefits such as a short recovery time, results comparable to LASIK, minimal to no discomfort, no incision made on the cornea, and more.
After surgery, can I resume my daily activities?
Yes! Once you feel comfortable with your vision, you can resume your daily activities. We encourage you to take necessary precaution to avoid direct sunlight and dusty/dirty environments, as those can irritate the eyes. (Eye shields or polarized sunglasses are perfect for these situations.)
Am I a candidate for this vision-correcting procedure?
If you deal with astigmatism, farsightedness, or nearsightedness, this procedure can help. LASEK is ideal for people who have thin corneas or large pupils. However, a consultation with an eye specialist will determine your candidacy for this procedure.
