Frequently Asked Questions
Laser eye surgery is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to reshape the cornea of the eye in order to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

The procedure itself is generally not painful because anesthetic eye drops are used to numb the eyes. However, some patients may experience some discomfort for a few hours following the surgery.
Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a few days after the surgery, but it can take 3-4 weeks for the eyes to fully heal and for vision to stabilize.
