What Happens During LASIK?

LASIK eye surgery requires only topical anesthetic drops, and there is no need for stitches or bandages. During LASIK, each eye is treated independently, each procedure taking only about five minutes. LASIK is a relatively painless procedure, and the whole process typically lasts less than two hours. It will be necessary to have someone drive you home after the procedure.

What Happens After LASIK?

Your LASIK surgeon will send you home with antibiotic drops and anti-inflammation drops to put in your eyes at specific intervals after your LASIK procedure. To prevent your eye from becoming dry or irritated after surgery, you will have to use non-prescription wetting drops whenever needed. You should be able to drive, go to work, and enjoy most of your routine activities within a couple of days after surgery. You can bathe or shower, but avoid getting soap or water in your eyes for at least a week.

After LASIK It would be best if you avoid wearing eye makeup for about one week after surgery. You should wear eye protection when working out or playing sports. If you plan to resume low-impact sports right after surgery, you must wait at least one to three days. If you plan to resume more vigorous sports, you must wait two to two and a half weeks and for contact sports at least four weeks. You should avoid rubbing your eyes for at least two weeks after LASIK surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

If You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers!

How long will it take to realize my final result?

Every patient heals at a different rate; however, the majority of our patients achieve legal driving vision the very next day. Your vision will continue to improve with the final visual results being realized within a week to a few months.

Does LASIK hurt?

No. The treatment itself is painless. You will be given plenty of numbing (anesthetic) drops to completely numb the eye. You may feel a light pressure sensation around your eye, and after the procedure is finished you will feel a sensation our patients describe as “wearing a poor-fitted contact lens” for a few hours…but you shouldn’t have any pain.

Do you do both eyes at the same time?

Although that decision should be made between you and the doctor, with LASIK we typically do both eyes at the same time. Since the vision comes in so quickly and the post-operative sensation is minimal, doing both eyes at the same time makes sense to most of our patients.

Will I be awake during my surgery?

A mild sedative and anesthetic drops are given to you before your surgery. You will be fully conscious, yet relaxed throughout the procedure.

What if I move my eye during the procedure?

Dr. Crews uses the most technologically advanced excimer lasers that offer eye tracking capabilities to continually reposition the laser beam during your procedure. The laser detects and then compensates for small movements by guiding the beam to keep it precisely centered over the treatment area.

How long does it take?

You should plan on being in the office for approximately an hour-and-a-half. The actual procedure however, usually takes less than 20 minutes. Depending on your prescription, and the amount of correction needed, the laser itself only takes 20-50 seconds to correct your vision.

Can I drive myself home after the procedure?

No. You’ll need to have someone drive you home after the procedure. Although your vision may (or may not) be good enough to drive right after the procedure, everyone is different. The Valium we give you prior to the procedure is a mild sedative, and sedatives and driving don’t mix.
