2022 has finally arrived and brought with it a full year of possibilities and opportunities for change. You can start the year off right with a difference that you’ll use every day of every year for the rest of your life: achieving better vision. 

You use your sense of sight for everything, and you shouldn’t have to be held back by glasses or contacts to use it. LASIK is a fast and effective procedure with an astounding success rate, designed to help you claim the vision you deserve. 

Keep reading to find out how you can get new eyesight in the new year with LASIK!

How Exactly Does LASIK Work?

LASIK restores vision at the source of the problem. Refractive errors occur when light does not focus correctly onto the retina inside the eye, either coming into focus behind or before the light-sensitive tissue or bending into overlapping focal points in the eye. 

In most cases, this is caused by a cornea that’s an irregular shape. The cornea is the transparent tissue on your eye. 

It is responsible for most of the eye’s focal power, so vision problems are inevitable when it does not have the correct curvature. If the cornea is too steep, you’ll experience nearsightedness. When the cornea is too shallow, then you will experience farsightedness. If you have uneven curvature, it will result in astigmatism. 

During LASIK, your surgeon creates a thin opening in just the top layer of the cornea with a laser. The space is only a few microns thick and leaves the remaining tissue attached. 

A second laser is then used to reshape the cornea’s middle layer. Both lasers are guided by a computer, ensuring predictable and accurate results. 

After the correction is finished, your surgeon carefully places the top layer back over the reshaped surface, where it will reattach by itself.          

How Much of 2022 Will Be Spent Recovering From LASIK?

LASIK is one of the best vision correction options because your surgeon can preserve the top layer of corneal tissue. Only reshaping a minuscule portion of the cornea makes recovery much faster than older vision correction methods. 

You won’t have to wait for your eye to regenerate new tissue. Instead, you’ll need to be careful as it reattaches.

Everyone’s recovery time is different. It takes about three months before your vision reaches its peak after having LASIK. During this time, you’ll slowly be able to incorporate your general routine back into your life as activities become less risky. 

Typically, you should be able to do most things within a few weeks after LASIK safely. Make sure to follow all instructions from your eye doctor for the best results while you’re recovering.   

Is It Worth It?   

Ultimately, the only person who can decide if LASIK is worth it is you. However, taking the overwhelmingly positive success rate of the surgery and the lifelong benefits that LASIK can offer, most people agree that the vision correction procedure is one of the best decisions they’ve made. 

Are you wondering if LASIK is the right decision for you in the new year? Schedule a LASIK consultation at Stahl Eyecare Experts in Wantagh, NY, today!
