In brief: Dryness
Expect your eyes to be dry afterwards (sometimes permanently) and you may have some glare to night.
Also, lasik is for distance vision only (unless you get monovision) so expect to use reading glasses if you are 45 or older.

In brief: LASIK
Your procedure will take 8-10 minutes.
Your flaps are usually made first and then the laser correction is performed subsequently. There is generally no pain. After the procedure may be mildly scratchy for a day or two. Visual recovery is rapid with most patients able to drive the next morning.

In brief: FREEDOM
Seriously, one million patients have Lasik each year to throw away their glasses or contact lenses and regain their freedom. What is standing in your way.
. There is no pain. 99.99% have successful outcomes. Kissing is more fun without glasses Call Dr.Donnenfeld in the city

Some patients do have mild night vision issues like flaring around headlights. Avoid dusty and sandy areas until healed. Hydrate eyes and wear sunglasses initially per MD instructions.
