LASIK Eye Surgery in Six Minutes

This is the Science Friday (National Public Radio) video about LASIK eye surgery. The funny thing about this video is that the narrator, who is probably also the producer, is a lot more nervous about LASIK laser vision correction than the patient himself. He is cool as a cucumber, I am a surgeon, I had LASIK myself, didn’t think it was a big deal and now I see fantastic. The video features Steven Vale, MD, medical director of Acuity Laser Eye & Vision Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Dr. Vale is one of the most well-respected and experienced Lasik surgeons in the world. Dr. Vale has performed over 21000 laser vision correction surgeries. Dr. Vale’s ability and experience really comes out in this otherwise realistic and detailed glimpse at the world of laser vision correction surgery.

    I’m thinking of taking LASIK when I’m older. Maybe when I’m around my 30s. I’m only 14 right now so I don’t have to really worry about it. Hopefully LASIK will improve in the future and be more reliable.

    My only question is that is there ANY pain? No pain at all? Just looking at this makes my eyes dry and makes me feel sick.

    Excellent Video! I don’t believe any of that Mumbo Jumbo about how bad Lasik is. After all, they wouldn’t be in business anymore if it was that horrid. Very eye-opening!!! video. Get it? Eye-opening? XD. I will definitely get this when i’m done growing. My doctor said that at 18 I would be done growing and it would be okay. Opportunity of a lifetime! Amazing would technology can do these days!

  19. mzeljk3489 says:

    how do they manage not to blink? and does it hurt (at all)??????????

  20. Susan Gray says:

    Good blog post on business in the US. I learned a lot from it.

  21. cb8673 says:

    Huh, I hoped by facing my fear of this I’d be a bit more interested in going through with it. I’m not. I’d have a terrible time to overcome the urge to move my eyes away from blades and crap like that. I’m still amazed my father did it.

  22. halo2untoldlegends says:

    what do you see whn they shine the laser in your eye? I assume it’s really bright and annoying ; )

  23. arizonanicki says:

    This is crazy! I watched my Mother get this done a while ago. Totally freaked me out. But, she can see. so…

  24. Jon Yad says:

  25. nazbites says:
