If you’re in Greensboro or the surrounding areas and you’re sick and tired of dealing with the hassles and inconveniences of glasses and contact lenses, LASIK eye surgery is often a great way of achieving clear vision and a permanent solution to your vision correction issues. Though surgery is always a big deal, LASIK actually has one of the best safety records of any surgical procedure. Dr. Vic Khemsara has performed the LASIK procedure countless times and can answer any questions you might have.
One of the more common questions Dr. Khemsara receives from new patients is “How difficult will the recovery process be?” This is an understandable question. While Dr. Khemsara will walk you through the entire recovery process, you can take some comfort in knowing that it is likely to be simple and painless.
You will begin to see results immediately: after the eye surgery many people see the world in 20/20 vision, most without the aid of glasses or contact lenses. Still, it’s not unusual for your vision to fluctuate a bit in the days and weeks after your eye surgery. This is nothing to worry about.
LASIK eye surgery has advanced to the point where most patients are able to resume their usual activities a day after their procedure. You can return to work one to three days after your eye surgery.
Full recovery takes a few weeks. You might experience some relatively mild complications including:
- Dry eyes
- Sensitivity to light
- Poor night vision
These problems should be mild and don’t indicate a larger issue. They are also temporary and will subside over time.
