From improved self-confidence to a whole range of new activities, Laser Eye Surgery has a long list of benefits.
One of the truly remarkable benefits of LASIK eye surgery is that most LASIK patients experience dramatically improved vision within mere moments of the procedure. It is very common for patients to demonstrate near-perfect vision during their follow-up examinations the very day after LASIK surgery and to immediately discontinue the use of glasses or contact lenses.
After successfully undergoing LASIK eye surgery, one of the benefits patients are most excited about is freedom from corrective eyeglasses and contact lenses. In the vast majority of cases, patients enjoy visual acuity that is better than what they formerly experienced with the use of corrective lenses and are no longer dependent on glasses and contacts. For many LASIK patients, gone are the days of worrying over broken glasses or lost contacts, packing cumbersome cleaning and storing solutions or paying for costly replacements each time refractive needs change.
The use of thick glasses for high spectacle numbers can cause some undesirable side effects including magnification / minifcation of objects, reduced peripheral field of vision, and distortion of peripheral vision. All these problems are completely removed after LASIK surgery which lead to a considerable improvement in quality of vision. Hence LASER vision correction is extremely effective for improving overall visual satisfaction in higher refractive errors.
Patients who have undergone successful LASIK eye surgery find that travel becomes much more enjoyable and convenient because they no longer have to worry about packing a back-up pair of glasses or all the accessories necessary for contact wearers. Furthermore, such activities as swimming, cycling, skydiving and even spending a day at the beach become more pleasurable without the worries and hassles associated with corrective eyewear.
Perhaps the most life changing of the many LASIK benefits is the heightened self-confidence many patients attain. After LASIK surgery, patients no longer feel as though their faces are hidden by glasses. From the convenience of not having to worry about glasses or contact lenses, to increased self-confidence and a wider range of possible activities, patients who undergo LASIK eye surgery often feel like a whole new world has been opened to them.

LASIK, although a surgical procedure, is one of the safest surgeries performed worldwide. The risk of complications is negligible, most common of which are mild post-operative discomfort, and most severe complication being failure to remove the spectacle number. Loss of vision is almost never encountered. The surgery is short, smooth and comfortable, and takes about 10 to 15 minutes to treat both eyes. The entire procedure is done in day care, where the patient can walk in for the surgery and can leave for home once it is complete, although a small period of bed rest following the surgery is advisable. There is no pain whatsoever felt during LASIK surgery
