Frequently Asked Questions About LASIK 

Will LASIK hurt?

No, LASIK is typically painless because we apply anesthetic drops to numb your eyes. Once the anesthetic wears off, several hours after surgery, you may feel some temporary discomfort that should resolve within a day. 

Is LASIK covered by insurance?

No, LASIK is considered an elective procedure so health insurance and vision insurance do not usually cover it. Some plans may offer a discount, but can only be used at designated offices where most patients find having to drive out of the area in order to use the discount end up spending what they saved in gas prices and time spent out of their day. At Skyline Lasik our patients prefer to take advantage of our cash-pay discount or financing options

What can LASIK fix?

LASIK can fix refractive errors, including:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism (blurriness at multiple distances)

What are the side effects of LASIK?

LASIK is widely considered to be a safe and effective procedure.3 Of course, any medical procedure carries some risk of side effects or complications. The most common LASIK side effects are temporary and resolve once the eyes are completely healed, such as dry eyes, halos, or starbursts in night vision. Complications that may require further surgery include under or overcorrection. 

Who should not have LASIK?

People who have a history of serious eye and vision problems or conditions such as severe dry eye or glaucoma or should not have elective vision correction surgery. LASIK should not be performed while you are pregnant or nursing because the shape of the cornea can change during pregnancy.

What are my options if LASIK isn’t right for me?

If you are not a good candidate for LASIK due to thin corneas or a high level of nearsightedness, there are other options that may be right for you. We offer several LASIK alternatives, including PRK, EVO ICL and RLE.
