FAQs about LASIK Eye Surgery

What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure designed to correct refractive errors and improve vision. It is one of the most popular and commonly performed types of laser eye surgery. LASIK can correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye. By altering the shape of the cornea, LASIK surgery helps to focus light properly onto the retina, resulting in clearer vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Am I a good candidate for LASIK?

Determining your candidacy for LASIK requires a comprehensive evaluation by an experienced LASIK surgeon. Certain factors need to be considered, such as your overall eye health, the stability of your prescription, the thickness of your cornea, and the presence of any underlying eye conditions. Generally, suitable candidates for LASIK are adults who have a stable prescription, healthy eyes, and realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcome. An eye care professional can assess your specific situation and provide personalized advice regarding your suitability for LASIK.

Does LASIK hurt?

LASIK surgery is generally not painful. Before the procedure, anesthetic eye drops are applied to numb the eyes and ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Some patients may feel slight pressure or a sensation of movement during certain steps of the procedure, but it is typically not painful. After the surgery, you may experience some mild discomfort or irritation, but this can be managed with prescribed medications and typically subsides within a few days as the eyes heal.

How long does the LASIK procedure take in Kansas City?

The actual LASIK procedure itself is relatively quick and typically takes only 10 to 15 minutes per eye. However, you should plan to spend a few hours at the LASIK center on the day of the surgery. This allows time for preoperative preparations, including the administration of eye drops, and postoperative monitoring to ensure your eyes are healing properly. The overall duration can vary depending on the individual and the specific clinic’s protocols.

How Much Does LASIK Surgery Cost in Kansas City?

The cost of LASIK surgery in Kansas City can vary depending on several factors, including the specific clinic, the surgeon’s experience and reputation, the technology used, and any additional services or benefits included in the package. The cost of laser eye surgery in Kansas City at LasikPlus® is typically between $1,095 to a little over $2,400 per eye for most patients. We also offer a range of pricing options for laser vision correction, and we have easy financing options to fit your needs. It is important to note that LASIK is an investment in your vision and quality of life, and choosing a reputable and experienced surgeon is crucial for optimal results. The cost typically includes the initial consultation, the surgical procedure, postoperative care, and follow-up appointments. To get an accurate estimate of the cost, it is recommended to consult with LASIK providers in Kansas City who can provide detailed pricing information based on your specific needs.
