Let us give you peace of mind. At Clarus Vision Clinic we focus on quality and safety for our LASIK patients. Our surgeons have done thousands of LASIK procedures and have 13 years of experience. We are proud of our impeccable safety record with no patients experiencing vision loss after surgery. We also offer a lifetime enhancement commitment.
Really, this is a two-part question.
The answer to the first question is a resounding – YES! LASIK is a very safe medical procedure. As is the case with any surgery, there are potential risks of complications, but the risks are small. Some studies indicate that the risk of vision loss is greater with contact lens use than with LASIK. The U.S. Air Force and Navy allow their fighter pilots to have LASIK. No pilot in either service has been “grounded” after having laser vision correction. NASA also allows their astronauts to have LASIK.
More than 16 million LASIK procedures have been performed in the United States with very high patient satisfaction in visual outcomes. Based on research, the rate of complications from LASIK surgery is less than one percent, making LASIK one of the safest elective surgical procedures available today.
Answering the second question requires an investment of time on the part of you, the patient. This is because the only way to answer the second question accurately is for you to have a thorough LASIK evaluation with one of our qualified surgeons at Clarus Vision Clinic. This is an incredibly important step in the process of deciding if LASIK is right for you and your vision. Tired of glasses and contacts? Come and see if you are a candidate.
