If you are looking for vision treatment where you no longer need glasses or contact lenses, Lasik treatment is the solution. It is a quick and painless treatment that will improve your vision greatly so that you don't have to rely on glasses or contact lenses. Refractive surgery is a term that incorporates different types of surgeries to correct vision which includes Lasik. Refractive surgeries typically correct mild vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. In addition, it can also be used to repair cataracts and treat severe vision problems.
LASIK surgery is an ambulatory procedure that only takes less than five minutes and is performed while you are fully awake. As quick as it may be, it is important to remember that you should have someone with you to assist you after the surgery.
Laser eye surgery only needs topical anesthesia – numbing eye drops will be used before the treatment to relieve you of any discomfort.
With your eye under the laser, your eye surgeon will create a thin, circular corneal tissue. The surgeon will then access the underlying cornea and remodel it to correct imperfections based on your particular prescription. Lastly, the flap is put back in place and the cornea is allowed to heal naturally. The procedure is done one eye at a time.
If you want to determine whether Lasik treatment will work for you, you must visit for a consultation with our team of expert eye surgeons. Depending on your age, corneal thickness, medical history, lens prescription, and overall eye health, we will determine if you make a good candidate for the procedure. Lasik surgery is long-lasting and ensures optimal results for people with poor vision and refractive errors.
Key Facts on Lasik
- You are awake during the procedure
- It is painless and causes minimal discomfort
- Drops will be used to numb your eyes
- Both eyes can be treated during the same visit
- Lasik eye surgery is an out-patient procedure, you can walk in and walk out
Immediately after the surgery, patients are highly advised to rest and get a long sleep for faster recovery. Temporary discomfort after the surgery will be relieved through antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops. Haziness or blurry vision is normal but it should be gone the next day.
Avoid doing strenuous activities that might affect healing. Other postoperative care includes wearing protective goggles to prevent rubbing or a darkened pair of shields to protect the eyes from bright lights. For most patients, dramatic results can be seen the next day.
As with any other medical procedure, follow the surgeon’s prescriptions, and return for a follow-up checkup to have your progress recorded.
Compared to other solutions, LASIK treatment boasts of giving almost instant results. Patients usually come out with improved and virtually perfect vision the next day after the surgery.
1. Freedom from Corrective Eye-wear
Being free of the hassle of wearing glasses or contact lenses is another reason why this treatment is being sought after. Because this treatment gives lasting results, you will also be free of the expenses of replacing or repairing the corrective eye wears.
2. New Activities and Career Opportunities
Activities that you cannot do before because of the poor eyesight will now be possible. Driving, swimming, cycling, and other sports become more enjoyable because you are now free of wearing glasses or contact lenses.

I'm glad that I had my LASIK surgery at Spanish Eye Clinic in Dubai. I have started to enjoy my improved vision. The surgery was painless and the instructions given to me during the surgery are perfect.
When the eye specialists informed me that it’ll be difficult to correct my vision as my flat cornea had high numbers, I was frustrated. I thought I won’t be lens-free… until Spanish Eye Clinic has recommended LASIK. The result is really magic for me.
Many thanks to the eye specialists of Spanish Eye Clinic in Dubai. Everyone was accommodative which made the entire surgery a hassle-free one. The doctors cleared all my fears related to the LASIK treatment with their smooth and painless surgery.
