Lasik eye surgery, also called refractive surgery, is a corrective surgery that reshapes the cornea in order to change its focusing power and improve the vision, so that the patient no longer needs the use of corrective lenses. After most procedures, visual acuity can change and improve almost 90 percent. After a short procedure lasting no more than 15 minutes, the patient is instructed to rest their eyes for the day, but vision improvements are noticed almost immediately. LASIK in Garden Grove can be done same day in our office at Orange Coast Eye Center. Before deciding on whether or not to get LASIK surgery, be sure to weigh some of the pros and cons. Many people find that the pros outweigh the cons and they are extremely happy with the surgery.
LASIK is best for patients who have not had any vision changes in the past year. The pros of LASIK are that it is virtually quick and painless. There is also a very short recovery time and a very high success rate. Most patients see with 20/20 vision after the surgery, which is excellent. The few cons of lasik surgery lie in patients who are far sighted. Often times, as opposed to the success of near sighted patients, far sighted patients may find that their vision actually worsens after the procedure is done. At Orange Coast Eye Center, our clients getting LASIK in Garden Grove find that they are very happy after having the procedure done on them.
