Featured Image

Embarking on the journey to clearer vision through LASIK surgery can be a transformative experience, but it's natural to have questions and concerns. At Wang Vision Institute, we understand the importance of informed decisions when it comes to your eye health. Here, we address some frequently asked questions to guide you through the LASIK experience.

What is LASIK, and how does it work?

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a refractive surgery that corrects common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During the procedure, a laser is used to reshape the cornea, allowing light to focus correctly on the retina.

Am I a candidate for LASIK?

Candidates for LASIK should be at least 18 years old, have stable vision prescription for at least a year, and have overall good eye health. A comprehensive consultation at Wang Vision Institute will determine your eligibility and address any specific concerns.

How long does the LASIK procedure take?

LASIK is a quick outpatient procedure, typically taking about 15 minutes for both eyes. The laser reshaping of the cornea is swift, and most patients experience noticeable improvement in vision immediately.

Is LASIK painful?

Patients may feel some pressure during the procedure, but discomfort is minimal. Topical anesthetic eye drops are used to ensure a pain-free experience. After LASIK, any minor discomfort usually resolves within a day.

What is the recovery process like?

Recovery from LASIK is rapid. Most patients can resume normal activities the day after the procedure. It's essential to follow post-operative care instructions provided by Wang Vision Institute to ensure optimal healing and results.

Are the results permanent?

Yes, LASIK offers long-lasting results. While age-related vision changes may occur, the correction achieved through LASIK typically remains stable. Follow-up appointments at Wang Vision Institute will monitor your progress and address any concerns.

At Wang Vision Institute, we prioritize patient education and transparency.
