Things to care about before Lasik Surgery
Why can’t I wear contact lenses a few weeks before surgery?
This is usually not a problem, but you should stop wearing contact lenses and switch to glasses at least a few weeks before surgery. Contact lenses can adjust the actual state of the cornea, starting to inaccurate measures and poor medical effects. Your doctor will give you specific instructions depending on your condition and how long you will be wearing contact lenses.
How do you feel about Lasik?
Most people who have Lasik Los Angeles surgery will have good vision for years or decades. You can exercise, swim, and watch your watch in the morning without worrying about glasses or contact lenses. However, you should still wear glasses when you are older or in low light conditions.
Most people report great satisfaction after Lasik Los Angele surgery. However, long-term results are generally not available or little studied. Part of the reason is that people generally felt dissatisfied after surgery, not having to repeat tests and collect follow-up data. In addition, Lasik Los Angeles surgery improves over time, with techniques and techniques constantly evolving. It is therefore difficult to conclude the reported data.
After completing and reporting postoperative follow-up, visual acuity was measured under optimal test conditions. Vision in dim light (eg twilight or fog) may not be as good as suggested in published reports.
Over time, your refractive power will gradually decrease and your vision may not be as good as it was after surgery. It may not seem like a big deal, but the expected rate of change is sometimes unpredictable.
How to choose an ophthalmologist?
Most people do not have direct knowledge of LASIK or an ophthalmologist. A good place to start when choosing an eye doctor is to talk to an eye doctor you know and trust. Or, ask a friend or family member who has passed Lasik.
Your ophthalmologist can work with your team to help you with your assessment and initial measurements. However, it is ultimately up to your doctor to determine if LASEK is right for you and to obtain the measurements to guide your surgery, perform your surgery, and manage your postoperative care.
Is your vision stable?
If you have nearsightedness, your vision may continue to change into your teenage years or beyond, and you may need to change your glasses or contact lens prescription regularly. Therefore, you must be at least 18 years old before considering LASIK eye surgery.
