Contacts after LASIK

Posted by fasttrack on November 17, 2015

Contacts_after_LASIK.JPGLASIK and other laser eye procedures have great records for successfully improving vision.  However, it doesn’t always improve vision to the point where prescription corrective lenses are no longer needed.

Wearing contacts after LASIK is sometimes necessary.  While a follow-up procedure or enhancement may be able to solve the problem, it is not always the case. Gas permeable or hybrid lenses may be a good solution for improving vision after LASIK.

LASIK surgery can significantly alter the shape of the cornea, making the fitting of contact lenses post-surgery a bit more challenging.  You’ll want to consult your eye care specialist to be sure you have the right contact lenses for your eyes.  For more information about contacts after LASIK, please contact Donelson Eye Associates in Greenville today!
