Lasik eye surgery is a scary thought, right? At the very least, you probably have some questions that need answering. Let us break down the basics.
Checking in will most likely take about the same amount of time as your Lasik procedure. With the latest technologies and cutting edge equipment, the actual operation time for Lasik is now about ten minutes per eye. It only takes a few seconds to perform the first part of your Lasik vision correction procedure. The corneal flap is created with a laser and lifted to expose the tissue that your Lasik surgeon is treating. The second laser is used to reshape the cornea and takes up to two minutes per eye. You will spend more time recovering and getting aftercare instructions than you spend in the operating chair.
The better the technology that your Lasik surgeon has access to, the faster your Lasik procedure is. There are also fewer chances of getting an infection. Quicker and less invasive Lasik means that you heal faster too. There are many reasons that you should consider using a highly recognized and regarded Lasik specialty center like Manhattan Lasik Center for your Lasik surgery.
