Embarking on the journey to clearer vision through LASIK or Contoura eye surgery is an exciting decision, but it’s natural to have questions and concerns. At Clarity Vision in Hyderabad, we encourage an open dialogue between our experienced eye surgeons and our patients. In this Q&A session, we address some common queries to ensure you have all the information you need before opting for LASIK or Contoura surgery.
Q: What is LASIK and Contoura Vision Correction?
A: LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) and Contoura Vision Correction are advanced refractive surgery techniques designed to correct common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK reshapes the cornea using a laser, while Contoura takes it a step further, providing a personalized treatment based on corneal mapping technology.
Q: How Much Time Does LASIK Surgery Take?
A: LASIK surgery is remarkably quick. The actual laser time typically lasts for only a few minutes per eye. The entire procedure, including preparation, may take around 20-30 minutes for both eyes. It’s an outpatient procedure, and patients can usually return home shortly after the surgery.
Q: How Much Time Does It Take for LASIK Surgery Recovery?
A: LASIK recovery is swift. Many patients experience improved vision almost immediately after the procedure, with minimal discomfort. Most individuals can return to normal activities within a day or two. However, it’s essential to follow postoperative care instructions for optimal results.
Q: What Questions Should I Ask Before Laser Eye Surgery?
A: Before opting for laser eye surgery, it’s crucial to have a detailed discussion with your eye surgeon. Some questions to consider include:
- Am I a suitable candidate for LASIK or Contoura?
- What are the potential risks and complications?
- What is the expected outcome, and what are the success rates?
- What preoperative and postoperative care is required?
- What is the total cost, including any potential additional fees?
Q: Is LASIK Painful?
A: LASIK is a relatively painless procedure. Numbing eye drops are used to ensure comfort during the surgery. Patients may experience some discomfort or mild irritation in the hours following the procedure, but this is temporary and part of the normal healing process.
No question is off-limits when it comes to LASIK and Contoura surgery. At Clarity Vision, we prioritize patient education and encourage an open dialogue to address any concerns.
