Summer Makeover: How LASIK Surgery Can Transform Your Life

June brings warm days and freedom from winter coats and hats – but what if you could also be free from remembering your glasses or dealing with contacts? By now, most of us have heard of LASIK surgery, or know someone who has had it and raved about the result. At Atlantic Eye, we offer this safe and effective surgical procedure that can dramatically improve your vision, so you can enjoy each day without needing corrective lenses.

Why Consider LASIK Surgery?

• Achieve 20/20 Vision: LASIK surgery can correct refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, offering you the opportunity to enjoy clear vision without glasses or contacts. (We talked about the 20/20 number in last month’s blog, The Gold Standard.
• Convenience: Say goodbye to the daily routine of cleaning, inserting, and removing contact lenses or constantly searching for your misplaced glasses.
• Improved Quality of Life: Experience greater freedom and better vision in your daily activities, sports, and hobbies.

What to Expect During the Procedure:

1. Consultation: Your eye doctor will evaluate your eye health and vision to determine if you are a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery.

2. Pre-operative Instructions: Follow specific guidelines provided by your Atlantic Eye surgeon, such as not wearing contact lenses before the procedure.

3. Surgery: During the quick and painless procedure, a laser will reshape your cornea to correct vision issues.

4. Recovery: Most patients experience improved vision shortly after surgery, with minimal discomfort and a quick recovery period.

Post-operative Care:

• Rest and Recovery: Allow your eyes to rest and avoid strenuous activities in the days following your surgery.

• Follow-Up Appointments: Attend follow-up appointments to ensure your eyes are healing properly and your vision is improving as expected.

• Eye Care Regimen: Use prescribed eye drops as instructed, and avoid rubbing your eyes to prevent irritation.

LASIK has transformed the lives of many of our patients. Your Atlantic Eye doctor will be happy to evaluate whether the procedure is right for you, and if not, discuss alternatives. For more information about LASIK surgery at Atlantic Eye, please visit our website services page.
