What to expect on surgery day:

To prepare for surgery the area around your eyes will be cleaned and a sterile drape will be applied. Anesthetic eye drops will be used to numb your eyes then a small instrument will keep you from blinking during the procedure.

During the first part of LASEK a softening solution is placed on the cornea. The thin layer of tissue is then lifted up from the surface of the cornea.

 

Most people see well enough to drive on the third day after the
procedure and can resume  their normal  activities at that time.

 

The second step of LASEK is the laser reshaping which takes just seconds. During this time you will be asked to look directly at a fixation light in order to accurately center the laser beam. The Excimer laser will be programmed with the information gathered in your pre-operative exam. The entire treatment will be completed in less than a minute or two, depending on the amount of correction needed. After the laser reshaping is complete, an extended wear contact lens is placed on the cornea. This speeds healing and reduces discomfort.

Following your procedure, you will be given additional eye drops, and your eyes will be shielded with plastic goggles. Your vision will be a little blurry so we recommend a driver for the ride home. You should relax for the rest of the day. Discomfort may last 2 to 5 days, but is helped with an over-the-counter pain reliever. It is usual to experience light sensitivity and tearing of the eyes for a few days after the procedure.

Vision can fluctuate for up to six months, but most people can see well enough to pass a driver's license vision exam a week or two after the procedure.
