Laser refractive surgery, which includes LASIK, is a permanent way to improve your vision if you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or any combination of those vision issues. Here at San Tan Eye Care, we are pleased to offer pre-operative care, with evaluations to determine if you’re a good candidate for eye surgery in Gilbert, and answers to all your questions so that you can go into the procedure feeling confident that it’s the right choice for your situation.
Laser refractive surgery works by reshaping your corneas, allowing light to travel to your retina and land at or close to the center, which is associated with normal vision. When your vision is less than optimal, it’s because that light is instead reaching near the front or the back of your retina; or in the case of astigmatism, the light refracts unevenly. Well, eye surgery in Gilbert corrects your vision, without the need for stitches, scarring, or bandages, usually in about five minutes per eye. The success rate is around 90%, and you can expect to see better as soon as the next day. Side effects for eye surgery in Gilbert are rare, but can include dry eyes, problems driving at night, sensitivity to glare, and halos appearing around images. Even years later, as your vision begins to change, you should be able to have adjustments made to your laser refractive surgery to account for those alterations in how you are seeing. Deciding to move forward with any surgery is a serious choice, so you should have all of the information before you do it. That’s what we offer.
