Before you think of having the LASIK you need to check your options. A lot of people do just fine with glasses, there are so many shapes and deigns for glasses today so anyone can choose what they like and best for their appearance. If you don't like your glasses you can wear eye lenses, there are many kinds: hard, soft, daily, weekly, monthly, Ortho K which are worn at night, and more. If you can't handle eye contacts and you have low or mild sightedness problem, you can try exercising your eyes with special exercises.
If nothing works for you and you still want to have the LASIK, check compatibility at the best clinic you can find and get a second opinion even if you are compatible. Ask about the risks and complications and how you can avoid them so you won't lose or hurt your eyesight. Talk to people who had this surgery whether you know them or not, ask about their experience.
The surgery is made under local anesthesia and takes about thirty minutes. The surgery is not painful but there might be some pressure felt during the surgery. During the surgery the surgeon will resurface the cornea by using the eye laser. The patient will be able to see better right after the surgery although his eyes will be sensitive, might tear, might hurt, or might sting. The eyesight will get better after a few days but will get stable only after a few months. The patient will be able to get back to normal daily activities at the following day after the surgery but will have to be careful, stay away from the beach, pets, smoke, dust, make up, and more.
