If you are tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses, you may be wondering if LASIK surgery is suitable for you. LASIK is a type of refractive eye surgery.

In general, most people who undergo LASIK surgery achieve visual acuity of 20/20 or better, which is good for most activities. However, most people still need glasses for driving at night or reading as they age.

LASIK surgery has a good track record. Complications leading to vision loss are rare, and most people are satisfied with the results. Certain side effects, particularly dry eyes and temporary visual disturbances (e.g., glare), are relatively common. However, these usually subside after a few weeks or months, and very few people consider them a long-term problem.

Your results will depend on your refractive error and other factors. People with mild nearsightedness usually have the most success with refractive surgery. For people with severe nearsightedness or farsightedness and astigmatism, results are less predictable.
