Every day the team at Clarity Eye Group meets men and women who want clearer vision and freedom from the inconvenience of glasses and contacts. Some of these individuals are reluctant to correct their vision with LASIK because of concerns or fears. These concerns are often based on misunderstandings or inaccurate assumptions about the LASIK procedure.
As laser eye surgeons, we feel an obligation to address common concerns about LASIK and clear up any misunderstandings. Our patients deserve factual, up-to-date information so they can make educated decisions about whether to move forward with laser eye surgery.
Pain and Discomfort
Concerns about pain and discomfort during surgery are extremely common. We can confidently say that LASIK surgery is not painful for our patients.
Prior to beginning your procedure, our team will apply numbing drops to your eyes so you will not be able to feel pain or discomfort. You also have the option to take an oral medication to help relax you and make you calmer and more comfortable as treatment takes place.
Reports of pain are extremely rare — most of our patients describe only a few seconds of mild pressure during the procedure.
LASIK may be more expensive than a box of contacts or a pair of eyeglass frames, but it can actually save you money in the long run. If you add up how much you currently spend on glasses, contacts and related recurring expenses, it becomes clear that LASIK is a sensible long-term investment.
Moreover, Clarity Eye Group is committed to making LASIK accessible to every budget. We offer several ways to pay, including practical, affordable financing plans for patients who qualify. Contact us to learn more.
You may be surprised at how quickly you recover from LASIK. Many of our patients see well enough to resume driving, work and most of their normal routine within a day or so of the procedure.
Expect some intermittent blurriness or fluctuations in vision as your eyes heal. You may also experience a gritty or stinging sensation or sensitivity to light after the procedure. But you can have confidence that these aftereffects are only temporary, and soon you will be enjoying clear, comfortable vision.
Side Effects and Complications
As with any surgical procedure, there is the chance that something may not go as planned. But serious side effects and complications are highly unusual after LASIK. By selecting our qualified, experienced laser eye team to perform your procedure, you are greatly reducing your risk of complications.
