What is LASIK?

LASIK eye surgery is used to treat common vision problems and is an alternative to glasses and contacts. It is the world’s most common elective procedure as of 2001. A LASIK surgeon uses a laser to reshape your cornea and correct your vision. Most people who receive LASIK will no longer need to rely on glasses or contacts in order to see properly.
Who Can Get LASIK?

Most people are eligible for LASIK surgery; in fact- about 80 percent of the population is a candidate for LASIK eye surgery. You do need to be 18 and older because your eyes will have stabilized by then. It’s also important that you be in overall good health and already have a common vision problem such as astigmatism, farsightedness, or nearsightedness.
How Will I Pay For LASIK?

Utah Valley Eye provides several options for financing your Provo LASIK Surgery. You can pay in full with cash, check, or credit card. You can use a flex spending plan to cover all costs of the vision correction. You can also talk to your vision insurance to see if they cover some or all of the costs involved in LASIK eye surgery.

How Safe is LASIK?

Thanks to years of technologic improvement, LASIK is incredibly safe. The majority of people who receive surgery experience zero complications. You will need to take proper care of your eyes after surgery by avoiding direct light directly after surgery and by being patient during the short healing process. You can also use antibiotic drops to help your eyes heal quicker. The average healing time frame is a week for most people.
