Lasik Does A Lot More Than Just Improving Your Vision…Find Out How?
As we know, LASIK (laser assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of refractive procedure that can correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. But hold on, there are few more unexpected benefits of this procedure , which you will experience when you get LASIK DONE.
You will have better night time vision
After lasik procedure though night glares/ halos are common, but many people say that their night time vision improves after the procedure. Without having reflections and a poor refractive surface because of dryness, many post-LASIK patients actually see better at night.
Improves your peripheral vision
In addition to improved straight-ahead vision, many of my patients remark how much better their peripheral vision has become since they no longer wear glasses. Once the glasses are gone, peripheral vision is clear as well.
LASIK patients claim fewer headaches and less sinus pain without glasses sitting on their nose. Contact wearers claim less eye irritation and redness because they don't have to put contacts in their eyes.
More Lines of sight
Some patients with high levels of myopia or astigmatism gain additional lines of vision after LASIK. These types of refractive errors are best corrected on the corneal surface and often increase a patient’s clarity after surgery — as opposed to only partially correcting them with glasses or contacts that move with each blink.
No more ‘four eyes’
Glasses can negatively affect people’s self image, and unfortunately for some people, contact lenses may not be an option. Freedom from glasses can improve patients’ self-esteem, as well as broaden their fashion and cosmetic options.
Each person’s eyes are different, and the benefits of LASIK vary from patient to patient. Consult us to determine if the procedure is right for you.
