Is LASIK Safe?

LASIK is one of the safest surgical procedures, not just on eyes but in general, performed today. With an incredibly low complication rate, laser vision correction is a safe and effective way to find permanent freedom from prescription eyewear. However, just because it is safe does not mean it is right for everyone. The best way to learn if LASIK is right for you is by calling our Wilkes-Barre laser eye surgeons at 855-204-6888 and scheduling your initial consultation today.

Potential LASIK Complications

The most common complications following laser vision correction are temporary. These include mild eye irritation such as dry eyes and imperfect vision. Both of these issues tend to self-correct. We will work closely with you during your LASIK recovery period to ensure there are no longer-term or more serious complications.

If complications arise or vision remains imperfect, a second procedure may be necessary. We take great care in performing laser eye surgery to avoid these complications, but when they arise are prepared to deal with them swiftly to ensure your optimal comfort.
