These types of surgeries are done on an outpatient basis. Both surgeries reshape the cornea and may correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism. With this surgery patients are less dependent on glasses and contacts. It is recommended that a patient be a least 21 years because their refractive change doesn’t fluctuate as much as a younger patient, which will allow for better results. The down time for this procedure is relatively short. However, every patient is different and recovery time may vary.
