Dr. Cowen usually performs LASIK surgery using just local anesthesia in the form of medicated eye drops, but if you are very stressed over the idea of surgery, Dr. Cowen will be able to provide something to help ease your nerves. LASIK surgery is generally pain-free and is completed in both eyes within 15 minutes. Results can usually be noticed by the patient in as little as one day.
When LASIK surgery is performed, our surgeon will use a laser to create a thin flap in the cornea, which is then folded back. A laser light is then used to reshape the cornea so that it can more accurately focus light on the retina. This is what improves a patient’s vision. For nearsighted people, the cornea is flattened; for farsighted people the cornea is made steeper. A special laser is also available to smooth an irregular cornea; this will correct astigmatism. The cornea will heal naturally after surgery. In LASIK surgery there are no stitches needed. Before the surgery, your 98104 eye surgeon
, Dr. Cowen, will have to make sure that you qualify for the surgery. Your eye health, and general medical health, will be taken into account for this important analysis.
