LASIK myopia surgery is a surgical procedure used to correct nearsightedness. It’s a safe, and efficient way to improve vision so you can get rid of your glasses or contact lenses. Before undergoing surgery, patients must meet certain requirements to ensure they are eligible for the procedure; it is not suitable for everyone with vision impairment.
What Is Myopia?
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error of the eye. People with myopia can see objects up close more clearly than distant objects. In other words, they have difficulty seeing far away things in focus. The cause of myopia is not fully understood, but it is known that genetic factors play a role.
Who Is Eligible?

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?
The procedure is relatively quick and painless. First, your eyes will be numbed with anesthetic drops. Then, a tiny incision is made in the cornea of each eye. The surgeon then uses a laser to reshape the cornea. This reshaping helps to correct the refractive error, allowing you to see clearly.
Finally, a bandage contact lens is placed over each eye which will be worn for several days after the surgery to protect your eyes while they heal. It is important that you follow all post-operative instructions carefully in order for your vision to improve as much as possible.
If you think surgery might be right for you, don’t hesitate to talk to an eye care professional about it. LASIK surgery can be a great way to improve your vision and finally be free of your glasses or contact lenses!
How Much Does It Cost?
UELC works to make our treatments as accessible and affordable as possible for our clients. The cost depends on several factors, including the severity of your myopia. On average, you can expect to pay between $1,400 and $3,000 per eye for LASIK myopia surgery. Your insurance may cover part of the cost, so be sure to check with your insurance provider.
Can I Wear Contacts After LASIK Myopia Surgery?
In most cases, contact lenses should not be worn directly after undergoing LASIK myopia surgery. It is important to give your eyes time to heal before putting any other objects into them. However, once you’ve been cleared by your doctor, you may be able to start wearing contact lenses again. Be sure to follow all post-operative instructions carefully in order for the best results.
Is LASIK Myopia Surgery Permanent?
Yes, LASIK myopia surgery is a permanent procedure. However, it is possible that your vision can change over time due to age-related conditions such as cataracts and glaucoma. In some cases, you may need to wear glasses or contact lenses for close-up tasks, such as reading or using a computer.
It is important to have regular eye exams after LASIK myopia surgery in order to monitor your vision and make sure it stays within the acceptable range. Your eye care professional will be able to advise you on any necessary steps to keep your vision clear.
