FAQs about LASIK Eye Surgery in Chicago, Illinois

  • What is LASIK?

    LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a laser vision correction procedure that reshapes the cornea to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. By altering the cornea’s shape, LASIK helps light to focus correctly onto the retina, resulting in improved vision. LASIK has become one of the most common elective procedures globally, with millions of people choosing this vision correction surgery to improve their quality of life
  • How long does the LASIK procedure take?

    The LASIK procedure typically takes around 10 to 15 minutes. It’s important to note that the actual laser treatment time is usually only a matter of seconds, as the laser is used to reshape the cornea. However, you should plan to spend a couple of hours at the center on the day of your procedure to allow for pre-operative preparations, such as numbing eye drops, and post-operative assessments to ensure everything went smoothly. The specific timeline and details of your custom bladeless LASIK procedure will be discussed with you during your consultation.

  • Is LASIK painful?

    During the bladeless LASIK procedure, you will receive numbing eye drops to ensure your comfort. As a result, most patients experience little to no pain or discomfort during the procedure. LASIK aims to gently reshape the cornea by treating minuscule tissue sections using a precise laser. Throughout the process, the LASIK surgeon ensures patient comfort. It is important to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by your surgeon to ensure a smooth recovery and minimize any discomfort. Read More

  • Does insurance cover LASIK?

    In most cases, LASIK is considered an elective procedure and is not covered by insurance. However, we recommend contacting your insurance provider to determine if they offer any coverage or reimbursement for LASIK surgery. Our team can also provide guidance on potential financing options to make LASIK more affordable for you. Learn More

  • How long is LASIK Recovery in Chicago?

    LASIK recovery time can vary from person to person, but in general, most patients can expect to return to their normal activities within a few days.

    It’s important to note that each individual’s healing process may vary, and some patients may experience faster or slower recovery times. Your surgeon will provide specific post-operative instructions and monitor your progress during follow-up appointments to ensure a successful recovery.

  • Am I a Candidate for LASIK?

    LASIK is suitable for many individuals. During your consultation, our LASIK specialist will conduct a comprehensive eye examination to evaluate your candidacy for LASIK surgery. They will discuss your individual case and determine the most suitable vision correction options for you. Here are some factors that may determine your candidacy for LASIK surgery:

    • Healthy corneas
    • Not have an active eye disease
    • Stable prescription: Candidates for LASIK should have a stable vision prescription for at least one year before the surgery.
    • Age: LASIK is typically recommended for individuals over 18 years old, as their vision should have stabilized by this time.
    • Good overall eye health: Candidates should have healthy eyes, free from any significant eye conditions or diseases.
    • Sufficient corneal thickness: LASIK requires a certain amount of corneal tissue to safely reshape the cornea. A thorough examination will determine if you have sufficient corneal thickness for the procedure. During your consultation at our LASIK Eye Surgery Center in Chicago, IL, our surgeons will conduct a comprehensive eye examination to evaluate your candidacy for LASIK surgery. They will discuss your individual case and determine the most suitable vision correction options for you.
