One of the most common elective procedures, LASIK – short for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis – has helped over 15 million people achieve near perfect vision. This safe and effective corrective eye surgery reshapes the cornea (the clear covering in the front of the eye) to actually change the way the eye focuses light. The goal is to eliminate or reduce your need for corrective lenses.
LASIK surgery requires the use of an excimer laser and a highly skilled professional. By reshaping the cornea, light can better focus on the retina in the back of the eye, making words, objects and images clearer. LASIK can provide better vision for those with myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. This painless procedure typically takes approximately 15 minutes for both eyes with immediate results and minimal recovery.
