Is LASIK safe?

Yes, LASIK is one of the safest elective surgeries.

  • High Success Rates and Satisfaction: LASIK has been performed for over 25 years, and it is one of the most studied elective surgical procedures. Clinical data shows that more than 96% of patients are satisfied with the outcome of their LASIK surgery. The procedure has a high success rate, with a significant majority of patients achieving 20/20 vision or better.
  • Low Complication Rates: The rate of serious complications from LASIK is very low, estimated to be well below 1%. Common complications include dry eyes and temporary visual disturbances such as glare, halos, and double vision, which typically resolve within a few weeks to months.
  • Advanced Technology and Techniques: Modern LASIK uses sophisticated technologies, including femtosecond lasers for creating the corneal flap and excimer lasers for corneal reshaping. These technologies help enhance precision and safety. The use of wavefront-guided technology allows for a more precise correction based on the unique characteristics of each patient’s eyes.

Does LASIK hurt?

LASIK does not hurt. Numbing eye drops keep you comfortable during surgery. As your eyes heal, you may feel minor discomfort. Some light burning and itching sensations are common. These issues will fade rapidly as your tissues heal.
