LASIK Eye Surgery In
Orange County FAQs

Wavefront LASIK surgery is a type of laser eye surgery that uses a special wavefront machine to map the surface of your eye. This information is then used to create a custom treatment plan for your surgery. Wavefront LASIK is often referred to as “custom” or “bladeless” LASIK because it offers a more individualized approach to treatment than traditional LASIK. It eliminates imperfections beyond hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism. The unit used to measure visual correction is called the Diopter. With wavefront LASIK, your doctor can measure visual correction to 0.01 Diopters, whereas with the traditional LASIK, they can only measure 0.25 Diopters.

Your vision may change after LASIK surgery due to various reasons. First, your vision may change if the initial problem that had affected your vision progresses. Age could also affect your vision years after LASIK because of a natural eye change called presbyopia that occurs as we age. It causes your lens to become less flexible and reduces your ability to focus on close objects. Most people who get LASIK done remain satisfied with their vision for ten years or more. If your vision deteriorates for other reasons after your first procedure, you may do LASIK enhancement or LASIK retreatment, depending on how much tissue was left after the first procedure

Most people can get rid of their glasses after LASIK surgery. However, it is important to remember that LASIK is not a cure for all vision problems. While LASIK offers tremendous results, some people may still need to use glasses or contact lenses for certain activities, such as driving at night or reading fine print. Being completely free from glasses will depend on factors such as your age, prescription strength, and type of refractive error. If you are under 40 years, you can generally expect to get rid of your contacts or glasses, but if you are over 40, your surgeon will talk to you about managing presbyopia. If you have a lower prescription strength, you will have a higher chance of being glasses-free. If you have a high degree of myopia, you will likely still need reading glasses even after the surgery.

LASIK surgery can correct refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It can also treat presbyopia, a condition that causes difficulty reading up close.
The best way to determine whether or not monovision or full distance LASIK is right for you is to talk to your eye doctor. They will be able to accurately determine the best surgery for you based on a series of tests and give you the best advice for your needs. The difference between the two is that monovision corrects one eye for distance and the other eye for near vision, while full distance LASIK corrects both eyes for distance. Monovision is best if you only need vision correction for one eye, such as if you are nearsighted in one eye and farsighted in the other. Full distance LASIK may be a better option if you need vision correction for both eyes.
As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with LASIK surgery. These risks include infection, dry eyes, and under- or over-correction of the vision. You may lose depth perception because one eye will be focusing at one distance while the other eye is focusing on another. After the procedure, you may experience blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and dry, itchy eyes, all of which usually improve within a few weeks or months. As with all surgeries, having a seasoned and expert surgeon affords you the best results. At Saddleback Eye Center, your LASIK eye surgery will be in the hands of an internationally renowned LASIK expert, Dr. Manger. Contact us and schedule your appointment today!

As with all surgical procedures, there are risks that will be discussed with you prior to having your procedure.
