Is LASIK Surgery Safe?

LASIK is one of the safest elective surgeries you can have with the greatest impact on your daily life. We understand the idea of surgery can be scary, especially when it comes to the eyes. To help reduce your nerves, we put together some facts about LASIK:

  • Modern LASIK surgery takes around 15 minutes for both eyes, and you will see results immediately.

  • Those having LASIK are up to five times less likely to have a complication with their eyes than everyday contact wearers.
  • LASIK’s patient satisfaction rate is over 98%!
  • Over 10 million people in the United States have had LASIK surgery. Over 40 million people world-wide have opted for LASIK.
