What is LASIK?

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a transformative eye surgery designed to correct vision imperfections like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Utilizing state-of-the-art laser technology, the procedure reshapes the cornea, the eye’s front surface, to allow light to focus more accurately on the retina. This results in clearer, sharper vision, often reducing or entirely eliminating the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Our team at Shah Eye Center is highly skilled in performing LASIK surgeries, ensuring a seamless experience from consultation to post-operative care. We prioritize your comfort and safety, employing the latest advancements in ophthalmic technology to deliver precise results tailored to your unique visual needs.

The LASIK procedure is an excellent option for seeking a long term vision solution and life changing experience. LASIK offers a quick recovery time, often allowing patients to return to their normal activities within a day or two. With high success rates and a strong track record of patient satisfaction, LASIK stands as a testament to the strides made in modern eye care.

Benefits of LASIK

Immediate Vision Improvement

One of the most compelling benefits of LASIK is the rapid improvement in vision. Most patients experience significantly better eyesight within 24 hours of the procedure, allowing them to enjoy life without the hindrance of glasses or contacts almost immediately.

Minimal Downtime

LASIK is an outpatient procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Recovery time is minimal, with most patients able to return to their regular activities within a day or two. LASIK is definitely the best choice for those with busy lifestyles.

Long Lasting Results

LASIK offers long-lasting results that can endure for many years. Periodic eye exams are still recommended to monitor eye health, but the need for corrective lenses is often permanently reduced or eliminated.

Common LASIK Questions

Considering LASIK eye surgery but have some questions? You’re not alone. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about LASIK to help you make an informed decision.


How long does the procedure take?

The LASIK eye surgery procedure is relatively quick. The actual laser treatment typically takes only about 10 to 15 minutes per eye. However, patients should expect to be at the clinic for a couple of hours to allow time for pre-surgery preparation and post-surgery care.

What is the recovery time?

The recovery time after LASIK surgery is usually quite short. Many patients notice a significant improvement in their vision within 24 hours of the procedure. Most people can return to their normal activities within a day or two, although it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities and certain environments (like swimming pools) for a couple of weeks. Your doctor will provide specific post-operative care instructions.

Are there any risks involved?

Like any surgical procedure, LASIK comes with potential risks, though they are rare. These can include dry eyes, glare, halos, double vision, and under or over-correction of vision. In very rare cases, there can be more serious complications. It is important to discuss these potential risks with your eye surgeon to fully understand them. The vast majority of LASIK patients experience a significant improvement in vision with minimal side effects.
