LASIK Eye Surgery: Your Vision Correction FAQs

LASIK FAQs
What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a revolutionary vision correction procedure that can free you from the hassles of glasses or contacts. During this bladeless laser eye surgery, an excimer laser gently reshapes the cornea with computer-precision to correct refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Say goodbye to visual aids and hello to crystal-clear natural vision!


Am I a Good Candidate for LASIK Eye Surgery?

The first step in your LASIK journey is an in-depth screening and evaluation by our experienced eye surgeons. During this comprehensive exam, we’ll assess your specific vision needs and eye health criteria.
Generally, good LASIK candidates meet the following requirements:

-Age 18 or older (with a stable vision prescription for at least 1-2 years)
-No existing eye diseases or conditions like keratoconus or glaucoma
-Sufficient corneal thickness
-Reasonable refractive error limits for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism

However, exceptions can sometimes be made depending on individual circumstances. Our laser eye surgery experts will take the time to understand your unique vision goals and medical profile. We’ll then advise if you’re an ideal LASIK candidate or if another vision correction treatment may be better suited for outstanding results.
Don’t settle for blurred vision a day longer! Schedule your LASIK consultation now to discover if you’re a candidate for improved visual freedom.


Does LASIK Hurt?

The thought of laser eye surgery may seem daunting, but rest assured, LASIK is a painless and comfortable experience. Numbing eye drops are applied to completely anesthetize your eyes before the procedure begins. You may feel a mild pressure sensation around your eye during the laser corneal reshaping, but no pain. Many patients are pleasantly surprised by how smooth and painless their LASIK journey is.
To ensure maximum comfort, your surgeon may also prescribe a mild oral sedative to help you stay relaxed throughout the quick 10-15 minute LASIK procedure.


What is Recovery Like After LASIK Surgery?

After your life-changing LASIK procedure, you can expect some minor irritation or a gritty sensation in your eyes for a few hours as the numbing drops wear off. This mild discomfort is temporary and can be easily managed with over-the-counter eye drops or oral medication prescribed by your surgeon.
Most patients find that a short nap after their laser vision correction allows their eyes to rest and reset. When you awake, you’ll be amazed at your newfound visual clarity! Your surgeon will also provide medicated eye drops to aid in healing and prevent infection during your swift recovery period.


Does Insurance Cover LASIK?

While LASIK is typically considered elective, some insurance plans offer:

Reduced Rates: Many insurers negotiate special rates for members. Call your provider to see if they have discounts for LASIK surgery.
Coverage Exceptions: For specific professions like athletes or military personnel, perfect vision might be job-related, making LASIK a covered expense. Explore your plan details or contact your insurer directly for clarification.
Maximize Your Savings:

Provider Discounts: Many LASIK clinics offer special pricing for AAA members, veterans, or by profession. Ask your chosen provider about available discounts.

Providence, RI LASIK Eye Surgery Center Reviews

I had a great experience with the LVI in Providence! I had been thinking about getting laser eye surgery done for many years but I was too nervous. Finally, I got fed up with having to rely on wearing prescription glasses/sunglasses and decided to go for it! The process of booking a virtual consultation through their website was easy and convenient. During the virtual consultation I was able to get…

The doctors and nurses were great and really took the time to explain my options and the procedure to me. I opted for the Mono procedure and got nervous about it at the last minute. They were so wonderful and patient with me the way they explained it all again! The procedure was exactly as they described it and only a couple days later I have 20/20 vision without corrective…

I had a great experience getting my vision corrected. The technicians (Jeannie, Krystal, and Bobbie) were helpful, professional, and patient while I dealt with some nerves. Dr. O'Shea was awesome in helping me get set up and double-checking my prescription. Dr. Varr was smooth and reassuring as he talked me through an experience I'd been nervous about for years before deciding to do it. Couldn't have asked for a better…

The staff were extremely friendly and all the doctors were amazing as well. I had roughly -7.50 with a stigmatism in both eyes. I didn’t think that I would be a candidate and I was so glad that I was. Surgery was really easy, the pain after numbing wore off was stupid and lasted for about 3 1/2 hours and then just randomly went away. I definitely don’t regret my…
