why you would not have a LASIK surgery if you wore contacts or glasses.
The most expensive, neatest or best-fitting contact lenses is said to reduce the amount of oxygen that gets to the cornea, and this could result into corneal swelling, thereby, affecting the exactness of important measurements of the eyes prior to LASIK surgery. Also, contact lens wear can affect the tear film, causing dry eyes; it can also affect corneal healing after LASIK surgery. For these reasons, eye doctors or LASIK surgeon will tell you to stop wearing contact lenses for a period of time prior to your LASIK procedure.
LASIK was not formally approved by the FDA until 1999, some people were scared of the procedure even after it was approved, however, it didn’t take long to become the preferred method for refractive surgery. It gave immediate vision correction with fewer side effects than previous methods. Today, it is the most popular elective procedure around the world, with more than 28 million LASIK surgeries performed all over the world.
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses) is a type of laser refractive surgery done by the use of a special type of cutting laser used to precisely change the shape of the cornea (the dome-shaped transparent tissue at the front of your eye) to improve poor or bad vision. It is also done to replace the use of glasses or contact lenses, by correcting certain common vision problems.
