Vision (Definition)

Vision is a feature of a person's brain that allows him to see. He must have normal eyes, optic nerves (that stretch from the eyes to the back of his brain), and visual cortex (the vision center in the brain), in order to see properly. An ophthalmologist is a ...Read more

I made a lasik surgery 2 days ago, till now i see blurry as if i am wearing a wrong degree glasses is it normal?what is the period 4 a clear vision?

Few months: Honestly, it can take 2-3 months before your vision stabilizes again and your eye is completely healed. It can vary based upon what your vision was like before the procedure. Ask your surgeon what he/she expects for you based upon what your eyes were like before the procedure so that you'll have a better idea of what to expect in terms of healing time. ...Read more

What will my vision be after lasik surgery? I am severely nearsighted and currently wear glasses that correct my vision to nearly 20/20. I am concerned that laser eye surgery will not be able to restore my vision to that level. Can lasik return my vision

What will my vision be after lasik surgery? I am severely nearsighted and currently wear glasses that correct my vision to nearly 20/20. I am concerned that laser eye surgery will not be able to restore my vision to that level. Can lasik return my vision

If : If your ophthalmologist feels that you qualify for lasik surgery, then there is a good chance that you will reach the 20/20 level after lasik surgery, as over 90% of patients undergoing lasik reach 20/20 after surgery. However, not everyone qualifies for lasik (especially those patients with high levels of nearsightedness such as over -10.0 d) and not everyone achieves 20/20 vision. My advice would be to have your eyes evaluated and then ask your surgeon to give you an estimate of what your particular chances are for reaching 20/20. ...Read more

Is it normal to have retinal swelling and corneal abrasion after cataract surgery? I'm 54 had lasik in left eye 3/30/05 no problems good results. Had cataract surgery on 4/21/11 vision 20/200 swelling retina 350 micron with wrinkles and severe corneal abr

Perhaps: Corneal abrasion at the time of cataract surgery can happen, but it is very rare. Certain conditions can increase the incidence (dry eyes, blepharitis, even previous lasik). The retinal swelling also is somewhat rare to the level you are describing, but it too still happens. Conditions like diabetes, uveitis history, and pre-existing wrinkling of the retina (epiretinal membrane) increase risk. ...Read more

I'm wondering when will contrast sensitivity return to normal after lasik surgery?

LASIK question: Contrast sensitivity usually returns to normal after the cornea has healed, which can be from a few days to weeks. Patients with preexisting dry eyes may feel their contrast is reduced - so treating dry eyes can definitely help with restoring quality of vision postop. ...Read more

Will i be able to have that good vision i had just after lasik surgery?

Will i be able to have that good vision i had just after lasik surgery?

Depends: How good is your vision pre operatively? How do you achieve that vision? The purpose of lasik is to decrease your dependence on glasses/contacts--not necessarily eliminate them. Often times the vision after lasik is comparable to glasses and contacts--that is why so many people do it. However it is not always as good as rgp or hard contacts. This is a good discussion to have with your eye dr. ...Read more

Does lasik surgery to get 20/20 vision again last forever?

Does lasik surgery to get 20/20 vision again last forever?

Not always: Lasik generally gives excellent results rapidly. A few do not hit the target and can be enhanced if the last improvement is important. Over time some 'regress' which means the eyes lose some of the improvment. This can also be fixed. When you get over age 40, with a perfect result, you will start of have near vision issues (presbyopia) which happens to everybody. ...Read more

Why is my vision blurry after having lasik surgery 10 days ago?

Normal healing?: If your surgery went perfectly, your eyes are likely still healing and vision will continue to improve. Peak vision sfter lasik can take weeks to months to set in. Undercorrections or overcorrections can occur. In these cases, enhancements may be needed. It is too early to know if you will need this. Ask your doctor about his opinion on your progress. ...Read more

I had lasik surgery week ago till now i can't see 100% thers a problem in focusing its hard to drive how much time will it take to perfect vision?

Vision can fluctuate: Vision can fluctuate for up to a month after lasik. In addition to dry eyes, I have seen lasik patients that have undiagnosed lid margin disease, which can also affect vision. Your lasik surgeon will be able to help if you have other conditions or dry eyes. For now, be patient and use prescribed drops and artificial tears. ...Read more

Would my vision change after lasik surgery?

It can: I am guessing you have had lasik and are now experiencing a visual change which is termed regression. The eyes are a biological system and changes can occur over time, usually a recovery of some of the treated myopia. Check with your lasik surgeon if the change is noticeable. ...Read more

What is the risk of having lasik surgery for better vision?

What is the risk of having lasik surgery for better vision?

Nothing is risk-free: The intra-operative complication rates are small, <1%, and the more common post-operative complications are dry eye and under correction. Overall, it is considered very safe, but every surgery has risks of infection (about 1 in 1000). Lasik also has risks for ectasia or flap complications. ...Read more

What is the worst vision that they will perform lasik surgery on?

What is the worst vision that they will perform lasik surgery on?

Eye parameters: The level of vision is not the criteria used for lasik evaluation. It is a combination of the refractive error (numbers like -6.00 on your eyeglass prescription) and the thickness of the front of the eye. Other factors include general health, age and history of eye disease. Check with your ophthalmologists for suitability or with the lasik surgeon you have chosen. ...Read more

I want to join the air force but have bad vision. Will getting lasik surgery impede my acceptance?

I want to join the air force but have bad vision. Will getting lasik surgery impede my acceptance?

No it should not: I suggest reviewing what the requirements are for the air force prior to undergoing the surgery. You would like to specifically confirm that doing lasik (versus prk) will not disqualify you from the air force and what must be the uncorrected and best corrected vision after surgery to still qualify. I suggest showing that paperwork to the surgeon and make sure they are comfortable filling out. ...Read more
