1,2,3 Smile! It’s that time of year— you know, the time of year when you have to practically bribe your children to sit still and smile for your holiday photos. Holiday photoshoots may as well be considered torture when you think about it: not only do you have to get everyone ready, you have to plan a location and wardrobes, and show up looking good yourself. If you wear glasses, you may be dreading sending out yet another holiday card with your glasses being front and center.
Luckily, with corrective vision surgery like Lasik, we at Papale Eye Center can help you get rid of your glasses for good and be the shining star of your holiday card.
What Is Lasik?
Lasik is a refractive surgery that is used to treat patients who suffer from a variety of vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During this brief, in-patient surgery, one of our doctors at Papale Eye Center will make a tiny cornea slit. After which, one of our surgeons will use an excimer laser to sculpt the corneal tissue which helps to restore your vision.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
One of the first questions you probably have about Lasik is how long it takes to recover. Aka, “Will I be healed and ready for my photoshoot?” Your eyes start to heal immediately after surgery, and we will schedule an appointment for you to come back into our office about 24-48 hours afterward to ensure that you are healing properly. Additionally, after a few days, the redness in your eyes should go down which means that most patients should be picture ready in about one or two weeks.
Standing in front of the camera with clear vision and confidence can turn your holiday cards from normal into fabulous.
