Laser vision correction - what it can do for you

Published on 27th October 2010

Short and Long sighted , even astigmastism, all can be corrected
If you have vision problems like farsightedness, nearsightedness or even astigmatism, you might be a candidate for laser eye treatment that will have the potential of changing the way you live your life. If you are already using eyeglasses or contact lenses, it can offer you the freedom of not having to worry about these things. For many people who have laser eye surgery done, they don't realize all of the benefits until they have actually had the procedure.

Laser surgery is very fast
Probably the most noticeable thing about having laser eye surgery is the speed with which the results come. Most people will find that after just a few hours, their vision is substantially better than it was prior to the procedure. In some cases, it may take people a few days to see the full effect but it certainly does not take long until you are seeing the world in a different way.

No ongoing costs once treatment is finished
After the initial change in your vision, you'll start to notice how convenient it is not to have to worry about eyewear or contact lenses. Not only do you not have to be concerned about them being lost or damaged, but you can do away with having to remember to order new ones as they become scratched or need to be replaced.

Lasik eye surgery makes life more convenient
There are a number of activities in daily life that are made much easier after you have had Lasik eye surgery. While it is not advisable to engage in strenuous physical activity following laser vision correction, once the eyes have healed you'll notice that many activities become much easier. You can go swimming or even skydiving without having to worry.

Don't forget to thank laser eye surgery for your increased confidence
Many people that have laser eye surgery notice that they have increased confidence to engage in a wider variety of activities. There may not only be sports that you want to enjoy, but there are also certain jobs that require good vision and can be difficult if you need to wear eyeglasses. Laser eye surgery is particularly effective for those people who do not like wearing contact lenses. If you think that you might be a candidate for laser eye surgery, talk to an ophthalmologist about your options.


All eye surgical procedures carry a level of risk including not obtaining the desired outcome, through to varying levels of visual loss. Your eye surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits, including ones specific to your circumstances, at the time of your pre-operative consultation.
