While LASIK eye surgery is highly successful with a success rate of approximately
95%, it does not always result in perfect vision. The surgery reshapes
your corneas using lasers, correcting vision problems like astigmatism,
nearsightedness, and farsightedness. The success of LASIK surgery therefore
depends upon how your corneas respond to the lasers. If you’re considering
undergoing LASIK surgery with an eye specialist near New York, read on
for helpful information.
If your vision isn’t completely corrected after LASIK surgery, you
can often have more work done to further correct your vision. In the interim,
or if further work is not possible, you may want to wear glasses or contact
lenses. Gas permeable contact lenses are often the best option, as their
rigidity corrects astigmatism, resulting in much clearer vision. You may
also want to consider high definition eyeglasses, which afford much sharper
vision than traditional eyeglasses. In some cases, it becomes necessary
to wear reading glasses due to natural vision changes that occur with age.
