LASIK & Laser Eye Surgery in Eden Prairie, How It Works and the Risks

The Eye Doctors LASIK, Laser eye surgery Co-Management Eden Prairie, Hennepin County, Minnesota

What is LASIK or Laser eye surgery?

LASIK refractive surgery is an advanced and contemporary way to decrease or eliminate your need for eyeglasses and contact lenses. During this laser procedure, your eye surgeon will direct the cool light of an excimer laser to reshape your cornea in order to correct any refractive error. LASIK can thereby resolve your nearsightedness – leaving you with sharp vision without eyewear. In general, the results are outstanding and many of our Eden Prairie, Hennepin County, Minnesota, patients enjoy crisp and clear vision after the surgery.

Why is LASIK so popular?

LASIK holds certain advantages over other vision correction procedures, such as a quick surgery, almost immediate results and minimal pain or discomfort after the surgery.

LASIK is also suitable for both nearsighted and farsighted people. If you are nearsighted, your eye surgeon will flatten the cornea appropriately, and if you are farsighted, your cornea will be made steeper. Once your cornea is reshaped properly, it functions more efficiently to focus light into the eye and onto the retina. The end result is clearer vision.
