Life After Laser Vision Correction

 

Welcome To Your New World - Expectations After Your Procedure

Day 1 Post-Op

WaveScanFor most of our patients, the day after LASIK is an unforgettable one. For some, it will be the first day of their lives that they've awoken to see the alarm clock. For almost everyone, when you wake up from a good night's sleep, you will see a major improvement in your vision. 99% of our Day 1 Post-Ops can drive themselves to their exam with no glasses or contacts. This is about a 15 minute exam to confirm that things are healing as expected. Functional vision is normally achieved in a short time, and patients return to work quickly. We recommend a day off on Friday and taking the weekend to enjoy your new eyes.

Obviously, visual outcomes vary from patient to patient. Not all patients achieve 20/20 vision, however most patients are able to achieve clear, functional vision without the need for glasses or contacts. To put that into perspective, take a look at these iLASIK statistics:

100 percent of nearsighted patients and more than 95 percent of all clinical study patients could pass a driving test without glasses or contact lenses.
98 percent of mild to moderate nearsighted patients and almost three-quarters of all clinical study patients could see 20/20 or better without glasses or contact lenses.
Four times as many mild to moderately nearsighted participants were very satisfied with their night vision after treatment compared to their night vision before treatment with glasses or contacts.

Ongoing Post-Op Care

Of course there is a healing process that occurs with this procedure, and fluctuations in vision are normal for some time after surgery. All post-op exams are performed by Dr. Eisner and he will monitor your progress until he feels confident to release you. Your post-op exam regimen is normally scheduled as follows:

1 day
1 week
1 month
3-6 months
Released for Annual Exam
