How Does Lasik Surgery Work?
During Lasik surgery, the surgeon will create a flap in the cornea, the lens on the front of your eye. Next, they will use a laser to reshape the cornea with the aim of correcting your refractive error (the cause of most blurred vision).
Of course, this is the simple version! For an in-depth explanation of Lasik surgery and the opportunity to ask your optometrist specific questions, schedule a Lasik consultation.
Is Lasik Surgery Right For Me?
As aforementioned, you must be in overall good health to undergo Lasik surgery. You must not be pregnant or nursing or use certain medications. Additionally, you must be over 18 and not have had a significant change in your prescription for a year or more.
Even if you satisfy all these requirements, Lasik surgery may not be your best option. Your Total Vision Solana Beach optometrist will perform the necessary examinations to determine whether a successful Lasik surgery is more or less likely in your unique case.
