Scary LASIK Tales

Spooky Myths About LASIK

Halloween is the spookiest time of the year. It is the perfect time to gather around a fire and share some spooky tales. We are sure that you’ve heard some pretty scary stories about LASIK surgery. These stories, like a good horror film, can leave a lasting chill up your spine, so the team at LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland is here to put your fears to rest.


1. A LASIK surgery will leave you blind.

You’ve heard it: a careless and inexperienced doctor enters the room and botches the surgery. You are then left with worse vision than you entered with. It sounds like a storyline straight from The Twilight Zone.

We are a team of highly trained, professional, and caring individuals with raving reviews. Did you know that there has never been a patient who has gone blind as a result of LASIK surgery? LASIK also has a 96% success rate, and that is not a Halloween myth.


2. The surgery is extremely painful.

Now, this tale will haunt many of those considering LASIK. The thought of a laser directed at your eye is enough to make even the bravest a little squeamish. This makes for a great sci-fi horror film, but this won’t play at LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland.

Eyedrops that numb your eyes are given before the surgery and a little bit of pressure on your eye is all that you’ll feel. The laser is actually only in use for less than a minute per eye.

After the surgery, you might experience some mild discomfort for a couple of days, but that is all.


3. It is scary expensive and comes straight from your pocket.

THAT IS SCARY! Having the surgery performed and left without a penny to your name. But, again, nothing to fear. 

Our team loves to improve the vision of all of those who enter our center. We love to make the financing easy for you. We have an application on our financing page that will show you a variety of affordable LASIK surgery payment plans. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call, and we will be more than happy to help.


Say boo to the lore surrounding LASIK. We hope we have put some of your fears to bed, and if you have any more questions, give us a call. Enjoy the fun of Halloween with a brand new outlook on LASIK. The procedure will change the way you see the world, literally, and that’s nothing to fear.

Happy Halloween!
