Overview of Refractive and Laser Eye Surgery (cont.)

Beyond side effects, there are other questions to ask before deciding on refractive or laser eye surgery, such as:

  • Will your insurance cover the cost of laser eye surgery? How long will recovery take?
  • Will there be any activity restrictions after laser eye surgery?

As technology progresses more and more, it is very important that you explore all options and possibilities before deciding which vision repair treatment is right for you.
