Lasik Eye Surgery

I have been considering Lasik Eye Surgery for about 2 years but i hesitated because i am afraid of surgery and my degree is not that bad. A couple of my friends went for Lasik and it really change their lifes. One went for Lasik is because he have to wear helmet when he is driving a bike and one went is because she hate contact lenses and the other one is because her eye sight is really VERY BAD.

Lasik improves their lifes greatly without needing to depend on glasses or contact lenses anymore.

Advantages of Lasik:

  • Painless and Fast Surgery process usually less than 30 mins
  • Achieve a better vision
  • Cornea strength is preserved and vision remains stable after Lasik
  • Corrects myopia with or without astigmatism and hyperopia with or without astigmatism.

Disadvantages of Lasik:

  • The healing process varys for each individual
  • Night Glare may occur in some cases.
  • Changes made to the cornea cannot be reversed.
  • Expensive
  • Side Effects for the first 24-48 hours such as Glare, Dry Eyes and Fluatuating Vision may occur.

I personally feel that before going for Lasik Eye Surgery, seek professionals and friends for advices. Best is go to Lasik Surgeons that your friends had tried it before. Overall, I think Lasik provides more convenience in life.
