LASIK Benefits: Enhance Your Vision and Quality of LifeBlade-free LASIK surgery offers patients many benefits, including an overall improved quality of life. This quick, painless procedure provides long-lasting visual enhancement for many patients. If you are considering LASIK, experienced surgeon Dr. Howard S. Kornstein will create a custom surgical plan based on your unique vision needs. Dr. Kornstein has performed thousands of refractive surgeries, and he uses the latest technology to provide his patients with individualized care. If you are interested in learning about LASIK benefits and whether you might be a candidate for the procedure, contact our White Plains, NY-area practice today to schedule a consultation.
Reduced Dependence on Corrective Eyewear
One of the greatest benefits of blade-free LASIK is that it reduces dependence on glasses and contact lenses. Patients who use corrective eyewear on a regular basis are usually well aware of how burdensome glasses and contact lenses can be. Vision correction with LASIK allows many patients to engage in recreational and professional activities without having to worry about corrective eyewear. In some cases, however, patients will continue needing corrective eyewear for certain activities, like reading fine print. Dr. Kornstein will explain the results you can expect to achieve following LASIK surgery during an evaluation.
Fast, Painless Procedure
LASIK surgery can be completed in about twenty minutes (ten minutes per eye). Laser technology allows Dr. Kornstein to enhance your vision without the use of a blade or sutures. Numbing eyedrops are used to minimize discomfort, making the procedure virtually painless.
Another distinct advantage of LASIK is the short recovery period following surgery. Most patients experience improved vision in as little as 24 hours, and are able to return to their regular activities within a few days. It is important that patients avoid certain activities, like contact sports and swimming, for a longer period of time, in order to minimize the risk of complications.
Although results vary from patient to patient, most patients achieve at least 20/40 vision after undergoing LASIK surgery. Visual improvement is generally long-lasting, though patients can still expect some vision changes due to the natural aging process. In some cases, patients may require follow-up treatment to achieve the best results possible.
LASIK surgery can improve what you are able to see as well as how you see it. Custom wavefront technology allows for the correction of both lower- and higher-order aberrations. Lower-order aberrations are imperfections in the eye that cause nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Higher-order aberrations are more complex imperfections that cause visual effects such as halos, glare, starbursts, double vision, and hazy vision. By using wavefront technology to generate a detailed map of your eye, Dr. Kornstein can reshape your cornea in an extremely precise way. Not only can this improve your ability to see clearly, it can also minimize lower-order aberrations and provide you with highly refined vision.
