LASIK Eye Surgery in Moncton: Benefits and Risks

This directory was created to help prospective Moncton LASIK patients find leading Moncton LASIK surgeons in a fast, convenient manner. These LASIK surgeons are dedicated to helping all of their patients achieve the best possible vision correction results. This is why they perform a series of thorough examinations before recommending any eye surgery treatment. In addition, these LASIK specialists take the time to thoroughly explain all of the benefits and risks of LASIK surgery so that their patients can make an informed decision regarding their treatment.

An obvious benefit of LASIK eye surgery is the possibility of correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism by a single application of laser energy. A typical LASIK procedure requires less than half an hour to complete, and most patients achieve vision of 20/20 or better. In addition, LASIK often helps improve patients' self-confidence and their overall quality of life. Many Moncton LASIK patients who no longer have to wear cumbersome eyeglasses feel more self-assured. They also have greater freedom to explore various sports and recreational activities as they no longer have to worry about foggy eyeglasses or lost contact lenses.

The main risks of LASIK include nighttime haloes and blurriness, and well as flap-related infections. The latter concern can be eliminated by undergoing a variation of laser eye surgery — PRK. During this procedure, no flap is created. As a result, the risk of flap infections is completely eliminated. The downside of PRK is that this procedure requires a somewhat longer recovery time than LASIK.
