Most Common Concerns About LASIK Eye Surgery

shutterstock_114326254LASIK eye surgery  has existed since the 1960s. Today, the surgery is one of the most effective and innovative vision care treatments available. Yet many individuals still have a fear of LASIK, despite its advantages and technological advancements. But remember, the highly trained staff at CorrectVision Laser Institute is here to answer your questions and ease your concerns about LASIK eye surgery.

Concern #1: Being Awake During Surgery

Being awake during surgery is an idea that concerns some individuals. However, in order to ease your fears, we would like for you to fully understand the process. Before the procedure begins, numbing eye drops are administered to your eyes to help you relax. You may feel some discomfort, but nothing alarming. An instrument is then used to hold your eyes open and a computer in the laser will track your eye movements—more than 4,000 times per second. The entire procedure is completed within 15 minutes!

Concern #2: LASIK Eye Surgery Cost

Whenever you are interested in participating in any surgery, the cost can seem daunting. However, fees typically include more than just the procedure alone. Our LASIK eye surgery fees cover the initial consultation with an eye exam, state-of-the-art lasers, highly skilled eye surgeons, personalized aftercare and a lifetime commitment. There are also some insurance plans and a variety of payment plans that you can utilize to cover a portion of the cost.

Concern #3: Complications

LASIK eye surgery, like all surgeries, comes with a risk of complications. But if you choose a facility with the most advanced laser technology and a highly experienced, reputable surgery team, the risk of complications is significantly reduced. In the initial consultation, your eye doctor will thoroughly explain the surgery, so you are aware of what the procedure entails. If you elect LASIK eye surgery, make sure you are comfortable with the risks and complications that accompany the procedure.
