Many people wonder how long it will take after a LASIK to see more clearly. The answer is immediately. Right after the procedure is performed, most patients can already see a significant improvement in their vision. As the medicated drops wear off, though, you may experience some discomfort as if something is in your eye. Generally, an over-the-counter pain reliever eliminates those symptoms. Your vision may be hazy or fuzzy at first, but with each passing hour, you will experience better vision. Most patients fully recover within 24 to 48 hours and are ready to take on the world with their Orlando LASIK-treated eyes from Magruder Laser Vision. Now that you can see more clearly, what is your first choice of entertainment? Here are some fantastic views to enjoy just 48 hours after your procedure.

Catch an Orlando Magic Game

Suddenly you can actually tell the numbers on the jerseys and watch fingertips flick the ball through the hoop. Scoreboards, even with thousands of dancing lights, are no problem to read. Even if you suffered from astigmatism before LASIK, the procedure corrected the inconsistencies with the shape of your eye and the long starlight pattern emanating from every light source has disappeared. Think of the money you can save by proudly sitting in the cheap seats instead of paying a premium price for seats near the court – you can see that well!

Fireworks at Walt Disney World

Your family ooh-ed and aah-ed over the dancing fireworks and synchronized water and music extravaganza that ends the night at several Disney theme parks. You were rather nonplussed, watching the lights and occasionally catching glimpses of the water as it glinted off your glasses. Suddenly, the entire performance comes to life in vivid detail and you understand their enthusiasm. What an experience!

International Drive

The SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, nearby Madame Tussauds, and The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye are breathtaking exhibits and a great way to share time with your family. SEA LIFE’s gallery of aquatic and marine wildlife will enthrall everyone as you walk through the fish tanks and take in the view. The rounded tunnel will no longer react negatively with your astigmatic vision, and without the glare from your glasses or the build-up on your contacts, you will see every colorful dot and stripe on the fish and other animals. Every feature on the wax figures at Madame Tussauds will amaze you with its lifelike quality, and your 360° view of Orlando from the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye will be difficult to top – literally!

Even spending time at home with your family offers wonders. Being able to read the digital display on the microwave, seeing the facial features of the actors on television, and watching the animated expressions on the faces of your children as they play in the park will surely bring a smile to your face.
