LASIK Surgery Myths vs Facts

April 18th, 2019

A neon sign saying "Myths Facts"

We know there is a lot of misinformation going around about LASIK procedures. This can be confusing and scary. To separate fiction from fact we asked Dr. Bagan and Dr. Strinden to dispel some LASIK myths for their patients in Fargo-Moorhead.

Myth: I can’t have LASIK because I have astigmatism.

Fact: LASIK is actually used as a treatment for astigmatism. Astigmatism is just another form of refractive error, like nearsightedness and farsightedness. Today’s advanced laser technology can correct the refractive error permanently.

Myth: All LASIK facilities are the same, it doesn’t really matter who I choose.

Fact: Your surgeon’s experience and technical expertise, combined with the technology used, have a large impact on your surgical outcome. Thousands of patients choose Bagan Strinden Vision every year because of our advantages. Dr. Bagan and Dr. Strinden are among the most experienced and respected vision correction specialists in the country, and have performed more than 20,000 procedures. With a full lineup of the latest technology they can provide a fully customized experience.

Myth: LASIK is new and no one knows the long term side effects.

Fact: We were the first surgeons in the Valley to perform LASIK more than 20 years ago. Over the years we have performed more than 20,000 surgeries with great results and no long term ill effects.

Myth: The LASIK procedure and recovery are painful.

Fact: Good news! Most patients report feeling no pain at all during and after the procedure. That’s because we apply numbing eye drops to prevent pain and discomfort. Most patients can resume normal activities the following day!
