  • My Journey with LASIK Surgery: A Clear Vision for the Future a blog from our patient


Imagine a life without the constant dependency on glasses or contact lenses—a life where you wake up and see the world around you with crystal clarity. This dream became a reality for me when I decided to undergo LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) surgery. In this blog, I will share my personal experience leading up to the surgery, the procedure itself, and the first 24 hours following the surgery. Join me on this transformative journey toward clear vision and newfound freedom.

Before LASIK Surgery:

As someone who has worn glasses for most of my life, the decision to undergo LASIK was not made lightly. Before the surgery, I had a comprehensive eye examination to determine my eligibility for the procedure. This involved measuring the thickness of my cornea, evaluating my overall eye health, and determining the prescription for my glasses. The eye doctor also discussed the risks, benefits, and possible complications associated with LASIK surgery, ensuring I was well-informed.

The anticipation leading up to the surgery day brought about a mix of excitement and nervousness. I followed the pre-surgery instructions diligently, which included avoiding the use of contact lenses for a few weeks prior to the procedure. On the day itself, I made sure to arrange transportation to and from the clinic, as I was advised not to drive immediately after the surgery.

The LASIK Surgery Experience:

When I arrived at the clinic, the medical staff warmly greeted me and made me feel comfortable. I was taken through the final pre-operative checks, and any remaining questions or concerns I had were addressed. The surgeon reassured me, explaining each step of the procedure to alleviate my anxiety.

In the operating room, I was positioned under the laser machine, and numbing eye drops were administered to ensure a painless experience. A device was placed to hold my eyelids open, and although this may sound uncomfortable, it was completely painless. The surgeon then used a specialized laser to create a corneal flap, gently reshaping the underlying tissue to correct my vision. Throughout the procedure, the surgeon provided clear instructions, and the entire process lasted only a few minutes.

The First 24 Hours After Surgery:

Once the surgery was completed, I was given protective goggles to wear and provided with detailed post-operative instructions. I was advised to take it easy for the rest of the day, avoiding any strenuous activities. I made sure to rest and keep my eyes closed as much as possible to aid in the healing process.

In the first few hours after surgery, I experienced a mild burning or gritty sensation in my eyes, but this was relieved by using lubricating eye drops as instructed by the doctor. It is essential to follow the prescribed medication regimen to minimize any discomfort and reduce the risk of infection. I also noticed that my vision was slightly blurry immediately after the surgery, which is expected during the initial healing phase.

As the hours progressed, I could already notice a remarkable improvement in my vision. Although my eyes felt slightly dry and sensitive to light, the overall discomfort was minimal. I followed the instructions of wearing the protective goggles while sleeping and refrained from rubbing my eyes.


Undergoing LASIK surgery has been a life-changing experience for me. The procedure itself was quick and painless, and the immediate results were truly remarkable. The ability to see the world without the aid of glasses or contact lenses is a newfound freedom that brings immense joy and convenience to my daily life.

It is important to note that every individual’s experience may vary, and it is crucial to consult with a qualified eye care professional to determine eligibility for LASIK surgery. Although there may be a brief recovery period, the long-term benefits of LASIK far outweigh any temporary discomfort.
