Most Common Misconceptions About Lasik Eye Surgery

Are you considering Lasik, but you are not sure if it is right for you because you keep hearing that it is painful? Perhaps your coworker said that you had to keep your eye extremely still. We help you find out the truth about Lasik below.

Myths about the Lasik procedure that you want to know

  • You can go blind – Lasik has a 96 percent patient satisfaction rate
  • Lasik is painful – The surgeon uses numbing drops before your procedure
  • Blinking can mess up your procedure – lasers like the NIDEKEC 5000 CX3 track eye movements and a speculum keeps your eyelids still
  • You need glasses after Lasik – Over 90 percent of Lasik patients have 20/20 vision or better following surgery
  • Contact lenses are better for your eyes – contacts distort the shape of the cornea after use causing damage
  • Last does not last – Presbyopia can create the need for reading glasses after age 40 but the Lasik effects last decades, laser correction after middle age can correct presbyopia and astigmatism
