Our doctor is trained and certified to conduct both pre and post-surgical exams for procedures such as cataract surgery as well as LASIK/refractive surgeries.
LASIK eye surgery is a third option, in addition to glasses in Dansville and contact lenses, that’s used to treat common vision problems (e.g., nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism). It’s been approved since the mid-1990s. In 2001, it became the world’s most common elective procedure.
A LASIK surgeon uses what’s called an “excimer” laser to reshape the cornea. Most people who get laser eye surgery therefore reduce their need for further vision correction, such as through contact lenses or glasses in Mason, MI.
It’s common for people to have LASIK eye surgery in both eyes on the same day and return to work one or two days later. Vision improves immediately, though it may continue improving for up to one year.
