TOO BUSY FOR LASIK? By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals, Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin
Life is hectic, we get that. But if you are thinking that you are too busy to have LASIK vision correction, think again. Maybe you are too busy NOT to have LASIK! This painless procedure takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish. That’s less time than you spend dealing with your contact lenses in a single week.
Although you are in the laser suite for a total of 20 minutes, each laser runs for just a fraction of that time. In fact, the first laser takes just 21 seconds per eye. That’s all the time it needs to place tiny air bubbles just under the surface of your eye creating a small corneal cap. A second laser then changes the shape of the eye in about 30 to 45 seconds per eye. The result is great vision without glasses or contacts.
Following your quick procedure, you are sent home for a nice nap and awaken that same day to greatly improved vision. The very next morning you are greeted with an even better view on life. We recommend that you take both the day of the procedure and the day after the procedure off from work and your regular activities. Generally most people see pretty well that next day so it becomes a free day, allowing you time to enjoy your new vision.
Let us help simplify your life with LASIK vision correction. To get started, call for your complimentary screening exam to see if this remarkable procedure is an option for you. We get to know you and your eyes; and take the time to explain that LASIK is not the same everywhere you go. You only want to have the procedure once so choose wisely. Select a local doctor you can trust and one who uses the most precise, current and safest LASIK technology available.
