Four Extra Benefits Patients May Achieve After Lasik

Many patients contemplate whether or not they should have their eyes evaluated to gain impeccable results with visionary enhancement. As one may have already discovered, Lasik is one of the most popular vision correction procedures in modern surgical history. With 19 million Lasik vision correction procedures performed in the United States through 2012 we have seen a huge demand in recent years and a majority of patients achieve excellent visual results following surgery. Lasik Beverly Hills is proud to share that potential candidates also have four extra benefits to look forward to after vision correction surgery.

Enhanced Peripheral Vision

One of the advantages that are not talked about too often is the ability to improve one’s peripheral (side) vision. Patients may have realized that wearing glasses limits a person’s ability to see clearly only through the center of the lenses. Many patients see clearly without the use of glasses after Lasik, and as a result, they will no longer see blurry images in their side view.  They will not have to turn their head to the side anymore once the glasses are gone, once vision is restored.

Allergy Symptoms Reduced Remarkably

One in 10 Americans suffers from seasonal allergies, and the most common symptoms of congestion, sneezing, runny nose or itchy, watery eyes can interfere with the person’s ability to pursue outdoor activities. As a patient’s vision is corrected with Lasik, they claim to have fewer headaches and less sinus pain from wearing glasses. Contact users also benefit too with less eye irritation and redness, as they no longer have to put contacts in to see clearly.

Improved Nighttime Vision

Many patients deal with nighttime vision restrictions and very few experience mild glare or halos after Lasik, but a majority of patients find their nighttime vision improves after the procedure. At first, patients find it hard to believe that they can now see limits at night, but this in large part is due to fact that they no longer have to deal with reflecting light off lenses or contacts. In fact, one study presented to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery found that 100 percent of pilots and aircraft personnel who underwent custom Lasik achieved better nighttime vision than others who were treated with traditional Lasik.

Additional Lines of Vision

Some patients with high levels of myopia or astigmatism gain additional lines of sight following Lasik eye surgery. Careful corrections of the corneal surface often increase a patient’s clarity after surgery opposed to temporarily correcting them with contacts or glasses.
