ClearSight Dispels Concerns and Demystifies Post-LASIK Discomfort
Oklahoma City, Sept. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Oklahoma City, Oklahoma –
ClearSight LASIK, a pioneering vision correction enterprise, today made public an extensive article to allay the common apprehensions people have regarding discomfort following LASIK eye surgery. The article, aptly named “Will I Have Pain or Discomfort After LASIK?” found here: https://www.clearsight.com/lasik/will-i-have-pain-or-discomfort-after-lasik/ furnishes detailed answers to the recurrent queries surrounding this life-altering procedure.
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a frequently performed refractive surgery in the United States and globally, successfully rectifying common vision issues such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure reshapes the cornea – the clear front part of the eye – enhancing the way light is focused or refracted by the eye, thereby improving visual perception.
A fundamental concern many prospective LASIK patients have is whether they will experience pain or discomfort after the procedure. The ClearSight article addresses this, stating that an anesthetic eye drop is applied prior to the surgery, numbing the eyes and ensuring no pain during the procedure. However, as the numbing effect wears off, patients may experience a mild sensation of grittiness or a feeling akin to something in the eye. These symptoms, while common, are typically short-lived, with most patients reporting relief within a few hours.
The ClearSight team stresses that LASIK is a transformative procedure, often providing patients with 20/20 vision and significantly reducing their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. The procedure itself is quick, typically taking only about 10-15 minutes for both eyes. While recovery times can vary, most patients are back to their normal routines within 24-48 hours, with complete healing potentially taking several weeks.
Additionally, ClearSight informs readers that the nerve regrowth in the cornea commences immediately post-surgery, leading to occasional sensations of grittiness and dryness. The cornea houses a dense network of nerves that are temporarily disrupted during LASIK, creating a brief sense of dryness. Despite this, the vast majority of patients do not notice these microscopic changes as their vision gradually improves with each passing day.
Addressing post-operative discomforts such as itchiness and dryness, ClearSight suggests the use of over-the-counter artificial tears, which can be used as needed. Protective eyewear is also recommended to safeguard the eyes from sunlight and dust. Additional tips for a smoother recovery include adequate rest for the eyes, avoiding activities causing eye strain, and adhering to the prescribed usage of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops to prevent infections, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Headaches following LASIK are another concern that the ClearSight team addresses, reassuring readers that minor, temporary headaches are normal as the brain adjusts to the new pattern of visual signals, similar to the experience when adjusting to a new pair of glasses. Extreme headaches, however, are not a typical symptom of LASIK and require immediate consultation with a healthcare provider.
The importance of post-surgical follow-up appointments is another key point emphasized by ClearSight. These appointments are critical for healthcare providers to monitor the healing process, answer any lingering questions, and intervene if additional therapies are needed.
ClearSight underscores that LASIK is transformative. While there may be some discomfort following the procedure, severe pain is rare. With proper care and adherence to post-operative instructions, most patients experience the life-changing reward of clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
ClearSight’s mission is to ensure the safety and comfort of their patients throughout their journey towards clearer vision. Their team of board-certified surgeons and highly skilled medical staff provides the necessary information and support patients need before, during, and after the procedure.
