Is LASIK Surgery Right For You?

Are you tired of dealing with disposable contact lenses or glasses? LASIK eye surgery can permanently correct vision problems. Visit Eye Care Associates Inc. at our Poland, Youngstown, or Warren, OH locations if you'd like to learn more about LASIK.

What Is LASIK?

The cornea refracts light onto the retina, which allows us to see. If you have a vision problem, such as nearsighted or farsightedness, the shape of your cornea causes light to be bent incorrectly. This causes blurry vision. LASIK is a type of eye surgery performed with special lasers. These lasers are used to reshape the cornea, allowing it to properly refract light. It can significantly improve vision, allowing you to see clearly without disposable contact lenses or glasses.

Is LASIK Surgery Right for You?

If you're interested in LASIK, it's best to schedule an appointment with your optometrist to see if you're a good candidate for the procedure. The best candidates for LASIK have a stable eye prescription and are in good health.

You may need to undergo some testing to determine if LASIK is a good option for you. LASIK surgery can only be performed on people that have a cornea that's thick enough to be reshaped.

Although LASIK can correct vision problems, there are limits to what it can accomplish. Your optometrist can tell you if your prescription is within the limits for LASIK. If LASIK isn't a good fit for you, you can ask about your other options.

What Are the Risks of LASIK?

While the benefits of LASIK are clear, you'll also want to make sure you're aware of the risks. Some of the more common risks of LASIK include:

  • Dry eye
  • Increased light sensitivity
  • Poor night vision
  • Astigmatism
  • Vision changes
