How Does Laser Eye Correction Work?

You likely have heard of laser eye correction by now. Many people are having procedures like LASIK done all the time, and they are enjoying the freedom of clear eyesight without the need for glasses or contact lenses. But how does it work? When you sign up for the operation, what exactly is going to happen to you?

Provided you pass a thorough eye exam to determine your eye health, your operation will last only for a few minutes. A laser will cut a flap from your eye to access the cornea, where it is reshaped to correct your vision. Once this is done, the flap is replaced to its original position. Your doctor will give you prescription eye drops and strict guidelines for you to follow. It is very important that you follow these guidelines – they can include not rubbing your eyes and special eye guards to wear while you sleep for a few weeks. All of these rules are to protect your eyes while they are healing. If you properly protect your eyes, then you can avoid doing further damage to them, as well as altering your vision. Laser eye correction in Detroit is a permanent procedure, and it is crucial that your eyes heal properly.

If you follow these guidelines, you will be able to finally enjoy the great vision that you have always wanted, and your eyes will be healthy. You will avoid irritation and will reap all the benefits that this operation has to offer.
