Unexpected Benefits of Lasik Eye Surgery

If you have been doing your research, then you know that Lasik eye surgery is a popular cosmetic treatment that improves the lives of many people each year. It also has a high success rate. There are a few things you may not have heard about Lasik surgery.

Lasik surgery can alleviate allergy symptoms

Without the foggy glasses and the pressure on your nose, your sinuses may not get so stopped up. You can breathe better when you are not wearing glasses. With a less stuffy nose, you have fewer headaches.

Lasik eye surgery improves peripheral vision

Professional Lasik surgeons say that people tell them that they can see more clearly and further to the sides after their operation. They liken it to the clarity of forward vision. This effect is often attributed to the fact that glasses do not wrap around the head. With glasses out of the way, the eye can see further in each direction.

Easier night driving

Many people can see much better at night after their full healing time has elapsed after Lasik eye surgery. Often, those with high refractive errors like astigmatism and myopia have decreased high or low vision without moving their head. Having Lasik surgery typically increases vision in all directions.
