How Safe Is LASIK?
While no surgery is risk-free, keep in mind that over 14,000,000 Americans have already had LASIK and that number is steadily increasing each year. Experienced LASIK surgeons report a complication rate well under 1%. Many ophthalmologist and optometrist believe the long-term risk of wearing contact lenses is as much as 5 times higher than the one-tie risk of LASIK.
Sometimes LASIK can cause dry eye for three to six months. This and other side effects can be minimized by thorough pre and post-operative follow-up care. That’s why we will schedule follow-up appointments for you at one day, one week, one month, three months and six months after surgery.
The most important thing to remember is the selection of an experienced LASIK surgeon. Make sure you look for someone who has worked on multiple patients using various LASIK techniques. Don’t be shy about asking for a referral and someone’s credentials. Dr. Mark Mayo and Dr. Edward Wade have performed more than 60,000 successful Houston LASIK procedures and more than 275 Houston area eye doctors trust their patients to Eye Center of Texas.
