LASIK eye surgery has allowed numerous recipients to once again see clearly without glasses or contact lenses. If you currently use eyewear but would rather not, you might be a candidate for LASIK eye surgery in Salem. LASIK is a type of laser surgery that corrects refractive errors. If you have been diagnosed with astigmatism, hyperopia, or myopia, you may qualify for this laser eye treatment. However, an eye doctor may also evaluate you for other conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma. To be an eligible LASIK recipient, you must not suffer from either of these eye conditions. Even dry eye symptoms may produce unwanted LASIK complications, so talk to your ophthalmologist about your complete eye health history before undergoing laser eye surgery. If you are a laser eye surgery candidate, you can undergo this procedure in less than an hour and enjoy clear eyesight just weeks after treatment.
