Harrisburg LASIK

LASIK surgery in Harrisburg

Harrisburg LASIK is a popular type of eye surgery that allows the patient to go without correctional lenses almost all of the time and in most cases. Most patients who undergo LASIK end up with 20/20 vision and without the need to wear corrective lenses ever again. A small percentage will still need to wear corrective lenses at some point, though their vision will be better. LASIK has been used for many years across the country, with astounding results. It has been used to treat conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.

LASIK, also known as refractive surgery, reshapes the cornea so that light can enter the eye and be properly focused, resulting in clearer vision. The surgery itself is painless and can be done in as little as 15 minutes. In most cases, improved and clearer vision can be experienced in less than 24 hours. After LASIK surgery, the patient does not need contact lenses or eyeglasses. A Harrisburg LASIK procedure uses a small laser to create a tiny flap in the cornea, which is then folded back to remove microscopic amounts of tissue to reshape it. This allows the cornea to better focus on light and improve on vision.

For those with nearsightedness, the cornea is flattened, and for those with farsightedness, the cornea needs to be steeper. For those with astigmatism, the irregular cornea is smoothed into a more normal shape. Harrisburg LASIK recovery requires no major healing process requiring bandages or stitches and no medications except for topical anesthetic drops. After the procedure, vision usually stabilizes within 24 hours but can take up to several weeks to heal. We ask that all patients receiving LASIK be prepared to have a driver to get home have afterwards. Patients may experience blurry vision and haziness immediately following the procedure, but this should go away by the next day, however, they should not drive immediately after.

Think about how deeply you depend on your eyes and your vision each day. How would you drive, read, work, and manage all of the other important activities of your day without your eyes functioning properly, or without the proper corrective lenses? If you desire clear, comfortable vision and want to decrease your dependence on your prescription frames or contact lenses, then an eye doctor that provides laser eye surgery and Lasik in Summerdale may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

If you require special accommodating lenses due to a refractive error such as such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia, laser vision correction can ensure your vision is always at its best. There are various surgical procedures for correcting or adjusting your eye’s focusing ability, and this is primarily done by reshaping the cornea. If you have a refractive error, and if you want to decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses and are free of eye disease, then corneal refractive surgery may be for you. Refractive eye surgery is a method for correcting or improving your vision. The most widely performed type of refractive surgery is LASIK, where a laser is used to reshape the cornea with the precision and ease. For patients who are nearsighted and choose laser eye surgery, the procedure will reduce the curvature of a cornea that is too steep so that the eye’s focusing power is lessened. Whereas for farsighted people, laser eye surgery will be used to achieve a steeper cornea which will increase the eye’s focusing power. Refractive laser eye surgery techniques that selectively reshape portions of an irregular cornea to make it smooth and symmetrical will best treat patients with astigmatism. No matter which refractive error your eye has, laser vision correction and LASIK in Summerdale will help focus the image clearly, vastly improving your vision.
