Myths of LASIK Surgery
Afraid of laser vision correction? Many people are unsure of laser eye surgery due to the many myths and poor information on the internet. We are here to bust the myths and shed some light on laser vision surgery.
Myth: The procedure will hurt
Our patients say they feel nothing more than a minor sensation during laser vision correction, if anything at all. At Focus Eye Centre we prepare you before your procedure by giving you numbing eye drops to ensure that the experience is as painless as possible.
Myth: I could go blind
Focus Eye Centre surgeons have performed thousands of procedures, and no one has ever gone blind at our clinic. Our track record of safety speaks for itself.
Myth: LASIK is too risky
LASIK is one of the safest elective procedures in modern medicine. At Focus Eye Centre the procedure yields high levels of patient satisfaction. Is it time for you to be one of our satisfied patients?
Myth: I’m too young or too old to have the procedure
You don’t have to wait to be a certain age in order to be considered a candidate for one of our procedures.
Myth: The procedure will be scary
We make sure your time with us from start to finish is as easy and comfortable as possible. As soon as you make contact with our friendly team, we answer all your questions, walk you through your options and work to ensure that any fears you may have are addressed.
Myth: Contact lenses are safer than LASIK
Research proves that long term use of soft contact lenses is riskier than LASIK. The potential for infection is high with daily contact lens wear: one person in every 100 contracts a serious eye infection due to improper cleaning and wearing habits.
