LASIK eye surgery has become one of the most popular options for vision correction. In most cases, the surgery can eliminate the need to wear glasses or contacts, saving you money in the long run and making your life generally easier. Here’s the lowdown:
What is it? LASIK is a laser eye surgery that reshapes the cornea, allowing light entering the eye to be properly focused on the retina for clearer vision.
Does it hurt? In most cases, not at all! The procedure is usually pain-free and quick (about 5 minutes per eye.)
How soon after will my vision improve? Many patients who get LASIK can see more clearly in as little as 24 hours after the procedure.
Am I a good candidate for LASIK? Only your eye care professional can tell you for sure, but the general guidelines are that you should be 18 or older, have a stable prescription for at least a year, and have generally healthy eyes.

“Looking back, I can’t believe how scared I was to actually book this surgery! I knew I wanted it, but was just so nervous. I feel silly now, because the surgery was such a breeze. I could immediately see so clearly- it was one of the best decisions of my life. Now, I’m seeing 20/15!”
