Should you feel scared about LASIK?

Laser Eye Surgery

Manek Patel speaks about the fear of LASIK laser eye surgery

It’s human nature to be afraid of any surgery, in particular with your eyes. That’s a common experience for everybody.

But the procedure itself is so well established. There’s nothing to worry about. It doesn’t take too long.

For most patients, when the LASIK procedure is over, they’re surprised how quickly it took. At the end of the procedure, they say, “Is that all it is?”.

After the procedure, when the vision starts clearing within a few hours, they were more surprised how easy it was, compared to what they had imagined before they came to me.
