Some benefits of Lasik eye surgery include not ever wearing glasses again and perfect vision. The thing is you have to be sure that this is what you really want, because the cost of the surgery is expensive and could set you back quite a bit if it is a sudden decision. With a recent survey it was said that around 85% of people that have agreed to the surgery have improved eyesight and do not depend on glasses and/or contacts anymore. The most people that experience the most success and 100% vision are those people that are nearsighted. Those that are farsighted and have astigmatism have to take the risks of getting the least possible results.
Although you will find that there are some benefits of Lasik eye surgery, you can find yourself in the same boat after the expensive costs. Before you go ahead you will have to get your eyes evaluated by a specialist at the clinics and he/she will be able to tell you if you are eligible for the operation. However, you have to remember that even if you do qualify you could still suffer the risks involved. You could be lucky and find that you eyesight has improved and you have all of your vision back. If the operation was not a success, you could find yourself depending on your glasses more than before, and what was the cost of that in the end?
There is the risk of losing your vision completely. You could also find that you are one of those patients that have worse vision after the surgery. You could also find that when you look at certain things, that objects have halo and starbursts around them. Sometimes you may suffer from double vision. These are only a pinch of the things that you have to be aware of when undergoing the surgery, but even so these problems outweigh some benefits of Lasik eye surgery at clinics in the Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town areas.
