How does LASIK work?

LASIK, otherwise known as Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, is one of the safest and most innovative vision procedures used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping the corneas. For the past 30 years, LASIK has become one of the most popular vision-improving procedures. With LASIK, patients can reduce or completely eliminate their dependence on eyeglasses and contact lenses. Over 10 million Americans have undergone LASIK eye surgery.

Is Laser Eye Surgery Right For Me?

Is LASIK Right for Me?

LASIK surgery is a procedure utilized to treat hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism. While we’ve had numerous Newark patients find fantastic and lasting results with LASIK, it isn’t for everyone. There is a list of key factors that may impact the success of any given LASIK procedure. Some of the things that we take into consideration when looking at a potential LASIK candidate include the following:

Pupil Size

Pupil Size

People with large pupils are not the best candidates for LASIK, as they are more likely to experience unpleasant effects, including glares, halos, starbursts, ghost images, and low contrast sensitivity—specifically at nighttime.
Cornea Thickness

Cornea Thickness

LASIK laser eye surgery involves reshaping the cornea to improve vision, so your corneas must be a sufficient thickness to undergo this procedure.
Eye Health

Eye Health

Having healthy eyes is a standard prerequisite for most types of vision surgery and is necessary for good results. Your eyes must be infection- and injury- free, and certain chronic conditions may disqualify you as a candidate.
Prescription Stability

Prescription Stability

Your vision prescription must be stable for you to receive LASIK surgery. If it isn’t, this could lead to additional surgeries as your eyes mature to further correct vision issues. This is part of why you must also be at least 18 years old for this procedure.

Prescription Severity

Prescription Severity

Patients with mild-to-moderate vision prescriptions are typically better candidates for LASIK than those with severe prescriptions. This is because a higher prescription severity can make the surgery outcome far less predictable.

Overall Health

General Health

Your general health is something that should always be taken into consideration before you receive a surgical procedure. Certain pre existing conditions and medications may make LASIK more complicated, as well as the healing process. This is why it’s of the utmost importance to always disclose your medical history as accurately and thoroughly as possible during your consultation.

Your LASIK Procedure

You should schedule an initial consultation if our doctors deem you a good candidate for LASIK surgery. This will help answer any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure and confirm your eligibility. As a premiere provider of vision surgery in central Columbus, we are confident you will leave your consultation feeling enlightened and confident about your journey toward clearer vision.

Once you have been cleared by an initial consultation, our doctors will approve you for surgery, which will take place at our office rather than the hospital. As you prepare for surgery, it is very important to be transparent about your medical history with the surgeon. On the day of your procedure, wear comfortable clothes, arrange transportation beforehand, and avoid drinking alcohol the night before.

Other Services

Although LASIK surgery is our main focus at CLCC, we also offer other eye care services! Here are just a few:

Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery

A common medical condition we treat is cataracts, which occur when the lens of the eye gradually becomes cloudy. This can lead to reduced vision clarity, among other unpleasant symptoms. Cataract surgery may alleviate your issues and correct refractive errors in a single procedure. For more information, be sure to visit our Cataract Surgery web page.
Implantable Lenses

Implantable Lenses

These lenses are used to replace cloudy cataract lenses or to supplement the eye’s natural lenses. At CLCC, we offer the most advanced implantable lenses currently available, which include monofocal, toric, multifocal, and phakic lenses. Visit our Implantable Lenses web page to learn more.
Dry Eye

Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome is one of the most common eye health issues that we see. If you frequently experience eye dryness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, or have difficulty wearing contacts, you may be a good candidate for various dry eye treatments we offer, such as LipiFlow ® . For more information, visit our Dry Eye web page.
Advanced Surface Treatment (AST)

Advanced Surface Treatment

If you aren’t a good LASIK candidate, you may qualify for a very similar procedure known as Advanced Surface Treatment or AST. AST is a more comfortable and effective surgery for patients with thinner corneas, chronic dry eye, and severe prescriptions. For more information, visit our Advanced Surface Treatment web page.
