A beam of laser being directed at your eye doesn’t exactly sound like the most painless thing ever. But what if you were wrong? While laser eye surgery is a daunting task to most people, the non-cutting procedure at Park Avenue LASEK by LASEK eye specialist Dr. Emil Chynn will put your mind at ease. If you are still wary, here is an account of an actual procedure on one of the office employees.
A prescription of -3.25 today could potentially put you in the “legally blind” category one day. Having to put on glasses or put in contacts every day can become part of your daily routine, but what if you never had to worry about this again? Park Avenue LASEK is now offering potential laser eye surgery patients an opportunity to experience what it would be like to get a procedure. Patients are now able to come into the office and be put under a mild sedation, so they realize how relaxed and calm they would be during a regular procedure. The money for sedation would be put towards your actual procedure.
A candidate for laser eye surgery (with this particular one being referred to as SafeSight™) and employee at Park Avenue LASEK, Tarek was eager to rid himself of glasses and contacts with this non-cutting laser eye surgery. Leading up to the surgery, his nerves inevitably got the better of him, even though he had seen many successful surgeries and their benefits throughout his employment. On the day of surgery he received both an oral sedative and nitrous oxide to make sure he was completely at ease. While he had full confidence in Dr. Chynn after witnessing his pristine attention to detail in other surgeries, it is understandable to be slightly nervous.
However, once the surgery began he was completely comfortable and experienced no pain at all. As you focus on the beam of light, the laser portion takes only about 15-20 seconds per eye. Remember, your eyes are completely numb throughout the entire process. Unlike other laser eye surgeons, Dr. Chynn actually overshoots your prescription slightly in order to anticipate future changes in your eye to make sure you will never need to have surgery again. While this procedure is permanent, it is important to understand that your eyes are an ever- changing organ. Your eyes will regress to their previous prescription slightly after the surgery and the “over correction” merely anticipates this. Dr. Chynn’s level of experience and number of successful surgeries has given him the ability to customize procedures for each patient to their specific needs.
After a few days of rest and recovery, support from the office staff and follow up appointments, Tarek was astonished by the results. He could already see at about 20/15. While he could sit up and see right after the procedure, he found that his vision was getting better and better every day.
