Laser Eye Surgery Procedure Time

LASIK_Surgery_Time.jpgAfter years of wearing eyeglasses or corrective lenses, you may be wondering how long it takes to have your vision corrected through LASIK.  It’s a common question patients ask when consulting with the staff at Donelson Eye Associates in Greenville.

In the hands of a highly skilled LASIK surgeon like Dr. Donelson, laser eye surgery normally takes about 30 minutes.  Numbing drops are applied so that you don’t feel any pain, only some pressure.  An enhancement is sometimes needed months or years following the surgery, to fine tune the vision and get it to where it should be, although this is not common.

Hormonal changes and aging can also require further vision correction.  If you have questions about LASIK in Greenville, please contact Donelson Eye Associates at 864-987-0034 or donelsoneye.com.
