LASIK information

Having problems with your eye sight? There is good news for you - the LASIK technology. It is the popular vision correction procedure available today. Recently, the FDA met to reaffirmed the LASIK’s safety and success. Based on scientific data, 95.4% of LASIK patients worldwide are satisfied with the results. This is the most studied medical procedures and is already well established and has an exceptional track record, according to Kerry D. Solomon M.D. Dr. Solomon is a world-renowned ophthalmologist and refractive surgeon at the Storm Eye Institute. He adds, “Today’s modern LASIK delivers superior safety and better visual results than ever before.” It uses 3D mapping and customized treatment for the 1st all-laser technology, which have been approved by the US Military and NASA on their personnel including the pilots and astronauts.

If you are considering this surgical procedure, you should research and learn about LASIK information. Talk to people and look for good physicians. Not everyone is a candidate. Only an average 20 – 25% of people are eligible. You are not eligible if you have thin, irregularly shaped corneas or unrealistic expectations. There is an estimated two-hour examination to be done, which includes 3-D mapping, customized wave-front measurements of your eye and an examination of your corneas.

If you are eligible, this surgical procedure is fast and almost painless. You may experience minor but not serious complications such as dry eye, halos and double vision. But these can be resolved over time or by enhancement or therapy.

With the above information I learned, I am considering this surgical procedure for my eye problem.
