After years of wearing eyeglasses or corrective lenses, you may be wondering how long it takes to have your vision corrected through LASIK. It’s a common question patients ask when consulting with the staff at Tidewater Eye Centers in Chesapeake.
In the hands of a highly skilled LASIK surgeon laser eye surgery normally takes about 30 minutes. Numbing drops are applied so that you don’t feel any pain, only some pressure. An enhancement is sometimes needed months or years following the surgery, to fine tune the vision and get it to where it should be, although this is not common.
