Is LASIK Safe?

Nov 16, 2019

Yes, it is.

A few supporting facts

  • LASIK has been around for nearly 20 years.
  • The procedure was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1999.
  • LASIK’s longevity and sustained popularity is due largely to its impressive record for both safety and effectiveness.

Based upon the research into and clinical experience with LASIK, the rate of complications from LASIK eye surgery is estimated to be less than 1 percent, which makes it one of the safest elective surgical procedures available today.

Another fact patients find a lot of comfort in is that LASIK is one of the most studied elective procedures performed today:

From 1993-2005, more than 9,000 patients participated in FDA clinical trials testing LASIK safety and outcomes. Till date more than 7,000 peer-reviewed published studies confirm the procedure is both safe and effective as well as look into other important aspects of LASIK. This vast body of scientific evidence includes studies that help refine what makes a patient a good or bad candidate for the procedure.

LASIK uses advanced computer-driven laser technology to reshape the cornea with microscopic precision. The high degree of precision and accuracy afforded by this combination of technologies helps ensure patient safety.

Newer techniques and technologies help reduce the incidence of post operative effects such as dry eye, glare and halos.

  • With the growing age and multiple times facing the problems of blurred vision, the need of doing an eye check up did arouse. I visited Ojas Eye hospital for the tests and soon I was diagnosed with the eye disease called Cataract. My mind was baffled with questions. Friendly approach of Dr.Dedhia, in Pre and post operations, was truly supporting. The advanced eye correction equipment did ensure the rest. My cataract operation is successful and at present I am blessed with clear vision.

  • She was suffering from a squint but the highly trained and welcoming team of the hospital made this tough times a comfortable one. The medical process was explained in depth which gave us a green signal with the sense of security and decided to go ahead with the surgery. I once again thank the entire team at Ojas for gifting my daughter the gift of a better sight.
