Everyone has birthdays, gets older and ages. Wrinkles may be relatively easy to get rid of due to the availability of the best anti-ageing tricks and treatments nowadays. But this is not the same case with your aging eyes as your vision will deteriorate over time and you will have to get some spectacles at some point. Wearing glasses or contact lenses can become tiresome but luckily for you, there is a solution for this in the form of LASIK eye surgery.
A study by the American Academy of Ophthalmology states that 9 out of 10 patients were able to get 20/20 which is similar if not better than your original vision. Having LASIK will allow you take part in recreational activities with no hindrance or worries about your glasses getting in the way.
Some of the Most Common Problems that LASIK solves are:
LASIK eye surgery is the most suitable vision correction choice for a lot of patients who suffer from both moderate and severe levels of nearsightedness. A lot of people who have undergone LASIK surgery usually suffered from nearsightedness initially prior to their surgery.
LASIK is suitable for people who suffer from farsightedness or hyperopia but requires a proper evaluation. People tend to experience farsightedness as the cornea is flatter and the eye is shorter than the normal eye usually is which causes distant objects to focus behind the retina.
The degree to which you are farsighted will determine how effective LASIK will be in treating your condition.
Blurred Vision (Astigmatism)
A lot of people suffer from blurry vision in either one eye or both eyes and this condition is known as astigmatism. The primary cause of astigmatism is the uneven steepening of the cornea.
6 Benefits of LASIK Surgery
- Your Vision is Corrected with Minimal Pain
You will have your vision back soon after your surgery and the defects of your vision will disappear. LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The pain is less and quick as the laser procedure is quick and painless. The laser procedure ensures that the entire surgery can be conducted in about 10-30 minutes and is quick and convenient.
- Night Time Vision Improves, Reduces Allergies and Infections
Contact lenses can cause infection in the eye if not maintained properly which can lead to allergies as well. Having LASIK done ensures that you won’t have to suffer from infections or allergies in future. Your night vision also improves a lot and you will be able to see better at night.
- Allows You to Exercise Daily without any Hindrance
Wearing either glasses or lens can be difficult when you do any physical activities such as swimming. Having LASIK surgery will allow you to partake in physical activities with a lot of ease.

LASIK may take a few months to get perfect clarity as your eyes adjust to your vision after which the results should be permanent. The only time that a patient requires retreatment is when his eyesight changes a bit due to age.

You don’t have to stress about any aftercare procedures as no bandages or stitches are involved.
