Some people never get used to contacts for one reason or the other.

How long does the laser eye surgery take and how much time does it take to recover?

The surgery is called LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) since laser is used to reshape the cornea and correct vision problems. While LASIK is the most common procedure, other procedures may be used, depending on your vision and eye problems. The others are:

PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) – this is a little different from LASIK as there is no need for a corneal flap in this surgery.
LASEK (Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis) – this procedure is used for people who have thin corneas.
Epi-LASIK (Epithelial Laser in Situ Keratomileusis) – some surgeons use this procedure that is a combination of LASIK and LASEK.

Apart from lasers used to correct vision problems, different kinds of lasers are also used to treat retinal tears or holes, glaucoma or post cataract clouding of the lens. The aim of all laser eye surgery is to bring vision as near normal as possible.

As the surgery is done by the use of advanced, computerized machines, it is most likely that it is over in about half an hour at the most. At that time you may have numbing drops put in your eyes. You may need to wear a transparent plastic shield after surgery to prevent the cornea from being inadvertently rubbed or scratched. You are expected to rest overnight and not use your eyes and by next day your vision should start to clear up. Depending on your number, you may feel fine in a couple of days or your vision may take a month or more to stabilize. You should take between two days to a week off from work and not strain your vision during this time, using drops as required and following other precautions.
