Is it safe to have it done? Is it true that we do not need to wear glass there after?
My step-daughter daughter was extremely near sighted and wore glasses that looked like coke bottle bottoms and she was blind without them. For her not needing glasses was a big deal.
There are some risks associated with any surgery. In the case of lasik the most common problem is dry eyes afterword. Infection and inflammation are also possible. Some people who have Lasik experience flare, or halos after surgery. One thing people should consider is their post-op vision may not be as good as their pre-op corrected vision. Doctors typically guaranty 20:20 vision but with glasses I see 20:15.. Were I to get the surgery and only have 20:20 vision I'd be seeing worse instead of better. The biggest problem as I see it is if you have a poor outcome chances are that you are stuck with it for life; surgeons can not un-do the surgery. Since I'm a presbyope I would need reading glasses anyway so for me Lasik just was't worth it. I did consider the less invasive CK procedure and monovision to put off reading glasses for a few years but I would need more correction that is possible with that procedure.
I think is very safe and if you can afford it then I don't see why not. Since not procedure is 100% effective there are cases where the vision has worsen or the person may need glasses still or notice things like floaters more or other anomalies. But it is so safe now that the US Military provide free Lasic to its force if you are a candidate for it. I think it will have to feel terrifying losing your glasses in a firefight and not being able to see!!!!!!
I have know several people who have gotten it done and they were extremely happy with it. It made a huge vision difference and allowed them to go glasses/contacts free. You should take the time to research it and then book an appintment to talk to a Dr. Like any operation there is risk and should be done only after serious thought and consideration.
yes its true. it works. my uncle has done it. he can see perfectly now. he had it done like 5 years ago or so, so things improve so its even safer now than it was then, and it was safe then. but like with any surgery there are risks
My dad had it done with his left eye and is seeing a lot clearer than ever and wants to have it done with his right eye as well. :)
I want to get it once my eyes have stabilized. My boyfriend's sister had it done a few years ago and now has 20/20 eye sight.
A close friend had it done about 2 years ago. No problems with it and he sees just fine!
