What is LASIK eye surgery?

LASIK stands for “laser-assisted in-situ keratomileuses” and is the most commonly performed eye surgery for men and women with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism (a problem with the shape of your eye).

LASIK eye surgery uses a laser to reshape your cornea so your eyes can focus clearly without glasses or contacts to correct your vision. It’s painless and typically takes about 15-20 minutes. Many men and women notice a significant improvement in their vision within 24 hours of the procedure.

Am I a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery?

Our doctors can help determine if you’re a good candidate for LASIK surgery. Our comprehensive exams includes a pre-operation that we can send over to the laser center with your permission.

The best candidates for LASIK surgery include men and women who:

  • Have mild to moderate near- or farsightedness
  • Have astigmatism in one or both eyes
  • Are in good overall health
  • Can lie flat without difficulty or discomfort during the procedure
  • Would like to depend less (or not at all) on contacts and glasses
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome

Our doctors explain the risks and benefits of LASIK and can send over a consultation form to the center. Once received, the laser center will contact you for a consultation appointment where advanced testing is done to determine your eligibility. Our doctors and their team are your partners through each step, from preparation for surgery to post-operative follow-up care. Here at Midway Optometry, we mainly work with who we believe is the best surgeon in San Diego, Dr. Parikh at NVISION Eye Centers.
