LASIK Questions

LASIK QuestionsDoes LASIK hurt?

Because the cornea is numbed with eye drop anesthesia, patients report little to no discomfort during the procedure. Some patients experience some scratchiness or grittiness for a few hours following while others did not experience any discomfort at all. We ask everyone to go home and take a nap immediately after his or her LASIK procedure. For any discomfort that remains after your nap, Advil or Tylenol is usually sufficient.

When will I be able to see?

Many patients notice an immediate improvement in their vision and have functional vision the very next day. Full visual results are typically reached within one to three weeks but individual results do vary.

When can I return to work, drive and to my normal activities?

You can resume most normal activities such as driving, working, walking, and exercising the day after your procedure. For women, eye makeup cannot be worn for three days and they should purchase new mascara. Swimming or contact sports such as basketball or racquetball should be delayed for two weeks.

What if my eye moves during the treatment or I blink?

During the procedure a device will gently hold your eyelids open, which will prevent you from blinking. In addition, at Tyson Eye the laser we use involves advanced eye tracking technology. Every laser pulse is completely controlled from its generation to the point when it contacts the cornea with utmost precision. To further enhance the safety and precision of your treatment, we use an advanced high-speed eye tracker to follow the eye’s fastest movements.

Will I need to wear glasses after?

Most patients who have undergone LASIK at Tyson Eye no longer need glasses for their daily activities. However, if you’re over 40 and did not elect for MonoVision LASIK, there is a possibility that you will need reading glasses because of the natural aging process of the eye. This condition, presbyopia, occurs as you get older.
