Your LASIK Questions Answered

Very safe! We understand the fear of the unknown, especially when it comes to a procedure of any kind. Being educated about LASIK can help put your nerves at ease. Here are some fast facts about LASIK:

  • LASIK is one of the safest elective surgeries in the world, with less than a 1% complication rate.
  • LASIK was officially FDA approved in 1995 for those 18 and older.
  • There is a significantly higher chance of having visually significant complications from contact lenses than from LASIK.

Many patients are pleasantly surprised to not experience any pain or discomfort during LASIK. Prior to your procedure, you may be given a mild sedative to relax, and numbing drops are used before you enter the vision correction suite. During your LASIK, a slight pressure may be felt for a few seconds at a time. Your Kugler Vision doctor will talk you through every step of the way so you can feel confident and prepared. After your LASIK, your eyes might feel irritated – most patients are comfortable after taking a nap. You are prescribed drops for your eyes that provide relief and healing in the days following your surgery. 

Your eyes aren’t “too bad” for vision correction. If you aren’t a candidate for LASIK, you are most likely eligible for one of our six other vision correction procedures. If you are unsure whether you are a candidate, we recommend taking our quick self-test.

We understand the importance of budgeting and planning accordingly for everything in life, which is why we offer flexible financing for each procedure we offer. If you are interested in inquiring about the price of LASIK and our other procedures, simply click on the chatbot down in the right corner of this page and we will send you a pricing sheet. 

LASIK takes about 10 to 15 minutes and most patients are back to their normal routine the next day. There is no need to take a leave of absence from work or put your life on hold for more than the day of the actual procedure. You should have a ride arranged for the day of your procedure because driving is not recommended, as you will feel a bit fuzzy and possibly  disoriented right after LASIK.
