The long term effects of LASIK Surgery have been studied & answered

Since the 1990’s LASIK surgery has been performed to correct a person’s vision and even though LASIK is FDA approved and considered one of the safest vision correction procedures, the question of long term affects on a person’s vision still remained…until now. LASIK Surgery patients can rest easy, studies have shown that LASIK surgery has little negative affect on a person’s vision over a long period of time. In fact, LASIK is now safer and more beneficial than ever thanks to the advancements in technology and lasers.

With newer lasers such as the Z500 Excimer Laser that we use for LASIK surgery in San Antonio takes LASIK to the next level of speed, precision and accuracy. The Z500 with EX500 technology allows us to treat wide ranges of treatments that patients weren’t candidates for such as LASIK or PRK for myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

San Antonio Eye Specialists now offers Contoura Laser Vision Correction technology, the next generation in LASIK which uses the latest WaveLight® topographic-guided laser system developed by Alcon Pharmaceuticals. This is one of the most technologically advanced excimer laser systems available in the United States that uses 22,000 points to map the surface of the cornea.
