Vision Health Articles: Candidate for LASIK eye surgery

If you are one of the approximately 14 million Americans who have glasses or contacts, you may have considered getting your vision repaired with LASIK eye surgery. According to the FDA, LASIK is a procedure that uses a special laser to carefully reshape a person’s cornea, and thereby change the eye’s ability to focus.

To qualify for this surgery, patients are first evaluated by their eye doctor. After being deemed a good candidate for the procedure, they can then schedule an appointment to have the surgery.

The actual procedure lasts only about 30 minutes and is virtually painless, although some people experience some discomfort or mild itching or burning. It may take up to a few months for your vision to be completely restored and stabilized, but it varies for each person. To find out if you would benefit from this popular surgery, contact your True Dental plan eye doctor and schedule a consultation.

The opthamology portion of the True Dental Discounts, vision care network generously offers 10% to 30% discounts on eye exams and surgical procedures in select markets. This means you could be saving money and improving your vision – what could be clearer than that?
