Lasik Eye Surgery is one of the most common elective surgical procedures in the world, with over 1 million Americans undergoing the vision correction treatment every year. LASIK is commonly used for patients with myopia and hyperopia, but can possibly be used on other vision problems. It is an outpatient procedure that takes only a few minutes for the actual procedure from beginning to end, and is virtually painless with few side effects.
The success rate of this surgery is perhaps the most appealing aspect of it, and the reason why it is so popular. Because patients suffering from nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and prebyopia are all good candidates for LASIK Eye Surgery, many people dealing with a variety of vision problems are able to get results from this surgery.
LASIK Surgery is not performed on children under 18, pregnant women, and certain vision conditions that would disqualify you from the surgery. If you're interested in LASIK Eye Surgery, schedule a consultation with a LASIK surgeon. He or she will be able to tell you if you're a good candidate for the surgery, and if so, you can join the ranks of the millions of people who were able to throw away their glasses!
