Patients may experience blurred vision, glare and halos or starbursts around lights during the healing process following LASIK surgery. The gift of sight is priceless. LASIK, commonly referred to simply as laser eye surgery, is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia nearsightednesshyperopia farsightednessand astigmatism. Undercorrections are more common for people who are nearsighted. Immediately after surgery, you might still feel the effects of medicine given to you before surgery, and your vision may be blurry. Your pupils may be dilated during this exam both to thoroughly examine the interior of your eyes and to relax the focusing mechanism of the eye to get the most accurate measurement of your refractive error.

FAQ Is the surgery painful? One eye will see things close up, the other eye will see things farther away — and the brain will integrate the visual information from both and filter out any blur. These two laser platforms represent the most current, state-of-the-art technology. The goal is to create custom corneal treatments based on information gathered from corneal topography and wavefront technology. The vast majority of the time, the individual will quickly know if monovision is a good option for them. The staff is always friendly and very helpful.

Bigles is a fellowship-trained refractive surgeon who has mastered the most advanced blade-free LASIK techniques. With monovision, you do not need to make any conscious adjustments in how to see and the brain usually adjusts within six to eight weeks. All such communication should be strictly made by telephone. Finally, the flap is folded back into place where it bonds quickly. LASIK eye surgery requires only topical anesthetic drops. Those who are moderate to extremely nearsighted have to hold something very close to their eyes to see it clearly.
