Laser Vision Correction

Everyone is talking about LASIK. Here is a brief description of the procedure; a flap is cut in the cornea and then the flap is gently folded back. A Laser is used to reshape the cornea; much like a contact lens forms a new shape on the cornea, only the laser is permanent. The flap is then put back in place, acting like a natural bandage.

The "Wow!" effect of Lasik is the very rapid recovery of vision and the decreased level of discomfort post-operatively. You hear from people that they did not feel anything, and could see well the very first day. Most people have functional vision in 24-48 hours. Although this is true in some cases, it must be noted that each person will heal at a different rate. Vision, although greatly improved immediately after surgery, continues to improve for some weeks, even months. Everyone's eyes are different.

Even though you may have had a friend who has had LASIK, it does not mean it is right for you. If you are interested in laser vision correction, Park Lane Eye Care will be happy to guide you in picking the right procedure and laser appropriate for you. The surgeons I am affiliated with have had impeccable results. They perform FREE consultations to ensure you are the proper candidate for any procedure. It’s just as important to get an approval as it is to identify a reason to be excluded until newer technology can correct you vision safely and effectively.
