Lasik eye surgery is very popular today. More and more people are interested in this operation and want to try it. But it is a pity that many know little about this; Maybe just knowing that you can help people get rid of glasses or contact lenses for the rest of their lives. But in fact, before doing this operation, we need to know more about this operation. Read on, below you will find more information on Lasik eye surgery.
History of vision correction
First, let’s look at the history of vision correction. For people with poor vision, glasses really help a lot to escape from the blurry world. Then with the rapid development of vision correction, people are dissatisfied with glasses as they affect their appearance and show their weakness to other people. So, contact lenses are invented to meet people’s needs.
Before deciding to undergo laser eye surgery, we need to know the following points: First, there is not one type of Lasik eye surgery, but several types. Regarding which surgery is right for us, it is best to speak with our doctor and our ophthalmologist will determine which one is appropriate based on our eye problems, eye tissue, age, general health, and affordable price.
Second, we must keep in mind that not everyone can be a qualified candidate for Lasik eye surgery. For example, if we do not have a stable ophthalmology prescription, it is not advisable to undergo Lasik eye surgery. Ophthalmologists generally prefer to perform surgery on people with a stable prescription. And other eye conditions we have can also prevent us from having surgery. If you want to know if Lasik eye surgery is right for you, you can have your eyes checked by an eye doctor, but of course, you must be a qualified eye doctor.
Third, finding an experienced, board-certified ophthalmologist is critical to Lasik eye surgery. As you know, the operation is performed by an ophthalmic surgeon, so the qualification and experience of the surgeon play an important role in this. We can log in and check if the eye surgeons’ certificates are valid, as well as read reviews written by patients who have previously undergone this surgery. And checking complaints with your local Better Business Service will also help us determine which eye surgeon is the best.
Last but not least, like other surgeries, Lasik eye surgery cannot be perfect. So, before doing this operation, we must take into account this preparation. Waiting too long will be disappointing after surgery. To avoid this, we can talk to our optometrist about our expectations of the operation to see if it can be done or not.
