AAPECS Atlantic Eye Care offers various options for better eyesight. In addition to eyeglasses and contact lenses, we proudly provide laser eye surgery services as an equally effective vision correction method. More popularly referred to as LASIK, the procedure is considered a lasting solution to your refractive errors. Here are some of its most remarkable benefits:
Better Visual Acuity
During LASIK, your eye care specialist will use a laser device to create a flap on your corneal surface. We’ll pull back this flap to access the underlying tissues and remove unnecessary ones. Afterward, we’ll put the flap back to its original position. As a result, your cornea would become more evenly shaped, which helps with the accurate refraction or bending of light.
LASIK requires a relatively short amount of time. On average, it will only take your eye surgeon to perform the procedure 15 minutes per eye. You’ll also be able to notice improvements in your vision within a few hours to a few days. Your eye doctor’s skills, instruments, and experience will play a large role in the length of the surgery and recovery period, however, so it’s important to turn to experts like AAPECS Atlantic Eye Care.
Studies reveal that undergoing LASIK can slow down the progression of your refractive errors, giving you many years’ worth of improved visual acuity. We may instruct you to have routine eye exams to continually monitor the procedure’s effectiveness, though. Doing so allows us to detect any irregularities so we can provide corresponding management as soon as possible.
Enhanced Quality of Life
With your improved vision, you’ll have an easier time finishing your tasks. This can also help you regain independence over your everyday activities. Researchers found that LASIK can reduce your need to use prescription eyewear as well, letting you enjoy a feeling of normalcy and enhanced quality of life.
