LASIK questions answered

Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute is the leader in LASIK and laser vision correction in the Louisville area. And due to advances in equipment technology as well as improvements in the procedural techniques LASIK has become even more popular as it continues to allow patients to become glasses-free. Doctors David Karp and Dr. Nandini Menon of Doctors Eye Institute are known for delivering excellent visual outcomes.

If you’re considering LASIK for safe and effective vision correction, you probably have questions about the recovery process. It will likely take a few days or so for your vision to stabilize after LASIK surgery, but you will likely notice almost immediate improvement.

Visual acuity improves dramatically within the first 24 hours in most cases. In fact, the day following the procedure the majority of our patients can drive without glasses when they return the next day to see the LASIK surgeon for a postoperative check of vision and healing progress!

The complete post-LASIK healing process typically takes several weeks. During this time it is not unusual to experience a degree of sensitivity to light, fluctuating vision, glare or halos around light. Also, most people experience some degree of dry eye condition immediately after LASIK. This common side effect can last several weeks or even months after vision correction surgery.

We are now offering our patients LASIK and Refractive Surgery at The Laser Eye Center at U of L Medical Center East located at 3920 Dutchmans Lane.

This new Laser Eye Center features both an excimer and a femtosecond laser. These state-of-the-art lasers employ the latest technology in LASIK and PRK procedures to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism along with other disorders of the eye.
