Life After Lasik
For most of our patients, the day after LASIK is an unforgettable one. Visual outcomes vary from patient to patient. Most patients are able to achieve clear, functional vision without the need for glasses or contacts. For almost everyone, when you wake up from a good night’s sleep, you will see a major improvement in your vision.
Ninety-nine percent of our clients can drive themselves to their day one post-operative exam with no glasses or contacts. This is roughly a 15-minute exam to confirm that your eyes are healing as expected. Functional vision is normally achieved in a short time and patients return to work quickly.
Obviously, visual outcomes vary from patient to patient. 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% of nearsighted patients and more than 95% of all clinical study patients passed a driving test without glasses or contact lenses
- 98% of mild to moderate nearsighted patients and almost 75% 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:
- One day
- One week
- One month
- Three to six months
- Released for annual exam
