Dr. Shah offers a full range of vision correction procedures, including All-Laser LASIK, designed to aid a wide range of eyes.
Your first appointment at LASIK Experts will be a consultation appointment during which the LASIK specialist will examine your eyes, assess your vision, discuss your medical history, and explain your vision correction options. If you are determined to be a good candidate for LASIK you'll be given pre-operative instructions before your scheduled LASIK surgery.
On the day of surgery, your LASIK Specialist will explain the different steps you are about to go through, and provide you with all of the necessary post-operative instructions, such as how to use the eye drops, and more.
Prior to your LASIK procedure, your eyes will be numbed using anesthetic eye drops and you may be offered a mild sedative to help you relax. The procedure generally requires 10 minutes of operating room time, during which the laser is used for less than a minute on each eye.
After LASIK surgery, you should plan to have a friend or family member drive you home and you will need to rest for the remainder of the day. You may experience some temporary mild irritation or discomfort, which can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication. Dr. Shah will provide you with detailed post-surgical instructions and schedule you for follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. Patients typically resume regular activities within two days., although strenuous activity will be restricted for at least one week.
LASIK patients typically experience improved vision right after surgery! LASIK has a very high patient satisfaction rate, and many patients love the sense of freedom that they feel. Many LASIK patients feel more confident and appreciate the convenience that LASIK can bring to their lives.
If you are over 18, in good general health, and are seeking a vision improvement solution for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, then LASIK may be right for you.
