What you should know about LASIK surgery

(This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Parkhurst NuVision)


I was recently invited to Parkhurst NuVision to meet with Dr. Parkhurst and his staff to learn more about vision correction surgery and to witness a LASIK surgery in person. During my visit, I experienced the consultation process. The process was incredibly simple and painless. They used special equipment to take images of my eyes so they can measure the thickness of my corneas, which will help determine if I’m a candidate for LASIK. During Dr. Parkhurst’s presentation, I learned that there are several different types of LASIK surgery, it’s not a one fits all process but a tailored surgery to best fit the patient.

Watching the surgery live was pretty impressive. I was just a few feet away and was able to see everything from start to finish. The procedure was quick and done within just a few minutes. The patient seemed comfortable the entire time. Once it was all done, she was able to walk out of the room as if nothing happened and without wearing her glasses. Patients are advised to return in a few short hours for a quick follow-up. A few minutes of painless surgery can result in excellent vision for the majority of patients.

Parkhurst NuVision understands that how you see determines how you experience the world, and their driving passion lies in helping people see their best at every milestone of life. Vision correction with LASIK surgery can free you from always having to wear your glasses or the hassle of using and cleaning contact lenses. There are yearly expenses for glasses and contact lenses and over time LASIK will save you time and money. Most who need vision correction are candidates. There are several different vision correction procedures that can be performed to best fit a patient’s needs. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Parkhurst gives his recommendation of a procedure with the patient’s vision and lifestyle in mind.
