What is LASIK?

LASIK, which stands for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, is a type of refractive surgery that corrects vision problems. The procedure involves reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, using an excimer laser. By altering the shape of the cornea, LASIK can correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, allowing light to focus correctly on the retina for improved vision.

The Benefits of LASIK Surgery

One of the primary benefits of LASIK surgery is its ability to provide long-lasting vision correction with minimal downtime. Many patients experience significant improvement in their eyesight immediately after the procedure, with continued enhancement over the following days and weeks. Additionally, LASIK offers the convenience of reduced reliance on prescription eyewear, enhancing daily activities such as driving, reading, and participating in sports.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Before undergoing LASIK surgery, our eye doctors will conduct a complimentary LASIK Screening to assess your candidacy for the procedure. During the surgery, numbing eye drops are administered to ensure comfort and a specialized laser is used to reshape the cornea according to the pre-determined treatment plan. The entire procedure typically takes only a few minutes per eye and most patients report minimal discomfort.

Recovery and Follow-Up Care

Following surgery, patients may experience temporary side effects such as dryness, glare, or halos around lights, which usually subside within a few days to weeks. Our eye doctors will provide specific instructions for post-operative care, including the use of prescribed eye drops. We will also schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

LASIK has changed my life for the better and I am so thankful for Dr. Benefield, Claire, and all the doctors and nurses who work there! It truly is the best money I have spent in my whole life. 2000/10 would recommend anyone to Dr. Benefield and his team.”   -Connor Arnoult from Gulfport, MS
