Options for LASIK Surgery Atlanta Residents Can Trust
While LASIK sounds like an all encompassing option, there are actually several types of laser eye surgery that can be used to treat patients’ vision problems with the use of lasers. Only one of these – laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis – is actually “true” LASIK. Other, similar, procedures also use lasers and are based in the same style of technology and procedures. Your Joffe MediCenter doctors will work with you to determine the best type of LASIK surgery Atlanta has to offer and which procedure will best correct your vision problems. For many patients, our complete LASIK surgery is an excellent option. For those with thin corneas or some other vision problems, a different type of laser surgery may be more appropriate. Prior to any surgery, our state-of-the-art technology and diagnostic equiptment will digitally scan your eye and provide our doctors with a map of your eye’s interior. This multi-point map both helps give an exact picture of your cornea and inner eye for later surgical use, but also helps trained surgeons identify which procedures may be best for you. Lastly, this detailed digital map provides us with the correct information to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. Most patients, including those with astigmatism, are excellent candidates for laser eye surgery.
Recovery Time for Laser Eye Surgery
One of the most common concerns about undergoing LASIK is the recovery time involved. Fortunately, Laser eye surgery is extremely simple and non-invasive. A simple out-patient procedure, LASIK patients typically find that a day of rest allows them to return to driving and work the very next day with drastically improved vision. A small percentage of patients may require enhancement surgery to further improve visual acuity, but for most patients vision is highly improved almost immediately.
