5 Laser Eye Surgery Myths:

All Laser Eye Surgery is the Same

There are many different types of laser eye surgery to fit your specific needs. Our surgeon will work with you and help you decide which type of vision correction surgery best suits you, whether it be Customized LASIK, lens vision correction or one of the many other eye surgeries we offer.

Laser Eye Surgery Isn’t Real Surgery

Laser Eye Surgery is definitely a surgery; in fact it’s an incredibly delicate surgery that should only be performed by a qualified surgeon. When performed on a good candidate by a qualified surgeon such as Dr. L. Shawn Wong, M.D. you can expect superior results and great pre- and post-operational care.

Complications are Common After LASIK

Complications are the reason it’s important to choose a qualified laser eye surgeon. When performed on a good candidate by a qualified surgeon, studies and reports show that risks are low. Our surgeon will evaluate you to make sure you’re a good candidate and help you decide if laser eye surgery is right for you.

Laser Eye Surgery is Painful

Many patients are worried that their laser eye surgery will be painful due to the fact that they remain fully conscious during the procedure. Patients are given a mild sedative before the procedure, and numbing eye drops are given before and during your surgery. While you may feel pressure during your laser eye surgery, steps are taken to make sure your laser eye surgery remains pain free.
