Are you considering LASIK surgery for vision correction. This is a very popular surgery, and people with astigmatism, nearsightedness or farsightedness are turning to LASIK. In the procedure, the surgeon reshapes the cornea to achieve 20/25 vision or better. In Manheim PA? LASIK eye surgery is close by in Lebanon at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania.
There are several things you should consider when thinking about LASIK.
Your choice of surgeon is very important. Our eye surgeons are board-certified cornea surgeons. For example, Dr. Kevin J. Shah, is one of our surgeons in Lebanon. He is a cornea specialist who performs many LASIK procedures. He is a New York native and did his residency in ophthalmology at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. Dr. Shah also did a fellowship in corneal and external diseases at the esteemed Cincinnati Eye Institute. He uses a variety of modern surgical techniques to Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Shah is a great example of our many fine surgeons. Finding the right eye surgeon is incredibly important so don’t rush the process. Come in and see us and talk with our surgeons. You’ll want to discuss education, experience and continuing training with the surgeon.
LASIK success largely depends on how well you follow your surgeon’s pre-surgery instructions. It is important to properly prepare for the surgery and to follow all instructions. For example, we typically ask contact lens wearers to stop wearing contacts on the days leading up to the LASIK procedure.
LASIK is an outpatient procedure, so you will get to go home on surgery day, but someone will need to drive you home and stay with you a while afterwards. LASIK surgery is very safe, but it is still a surgery and therefore has possible risks. Complications are rare, but discuss this with the doctor ahead of time so you will know what to expect. Some patients have inflammation and dry eye, but both subside in a matter of days. Some patients will develop infection, but we can treat these complications.
LASIK is an excellent choice for many patients, and it is likely a great choice for you as well. It is best to come in and do a thorough consultation and eye exam. We will determine whether you are a candidate and discuss your expectations and questions about the surgery.
Your eyes are important, so take your time in researching surgeons for this important health decision you are undertaking. In the end, thorough research and a great dialog with our surgeons will give you peace of mind that you have made the right choice and are well prepared for the surgery.
