Patients of his can take comfort in knowing that his knowledge and experience are unrivaled in the greater Chicago area. Dr. Herman Sloane is Board Certified and Fellowship-Trained specifically in Refractive Surgery (that is, surgery to eliminate glasses and contacts). This is unique among Chicago’s eye surgeons. Further, Dr. Sloane was one of the original Investigators for the Excimer laser while it was still in FDS studies, when only a few dozen surgeons in the Country were able to these procedures.

During the eye laser treatment itself, you are anesthetized with local anesthetic eye drops, which is why it does not hurt or you feel any pain. The risk of runny eyes or pain in the first few days varies depending on the method you have been treated with.

At LASIK, for example, there may be problems such as burning, irritation and light sensitivity as well as pain during the first few days and you may be recommended to stay home for the first five days. In other treatment methods such as LASIK, most people are completely symptom free, some experience slight burning and irritation in the first hours after treatment.
