Commonly Asked Questions:
How soon after surgery will I see well?

Each patient is different. Most patients experience a dramatic improvement 8 to 10 hours after the treatment.

Will refractive surgery hurt?
During the procedure, a strong topical anesthetic is used to numb the eye. Generally, only pressure is felt during the procedure.

Will I still need my glasses or contacts?
The goal of refractive surgery is to reduce your dependence on glasses and/or contact lenses, but LASIK patients still may benefit from reading glasses or distance glasses when they desire perfect near or distance vision.

Will my insurance cover LASIK?
Most health care coverage considers LASIK surgery an elective surgical procedure and does not cover it.
