A vast majority of patients are able to achieve their absolute desired vision with LASIK. It is an eye surgery that is performed on an out-patient basis, generally using only numbing drops for the eyes. Surgery is generally performed on both eyes at one time.
Laser eye surgery in Seattle
is also used by our eye surgeon to fix cataracts. During laser cataract surgery a small incision is made in the eye through which the damaged natural lens is removed and the new clear man-made lens is inserted. Generally this surgery is performed one eye at a time. Cataract surgery is also performed on an out-patient basis with the patient having only local anesthesia. This is a very common and generally highly successful eye procedure. The surgery itself takes less than 30 minutes and does not call for any sutures or bandages. It can take several weeks to fully heal from cataract surgery, however, many patients can see clearly enough the next day to go about their daily activities.
