LASIK is an acronym for a procedure called laser in-situ keratomileusis, which reshapes the cornea using a cool beam laser to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK is a quick, easy, and hassle-free way to improve your vision. In fact, millions of people have found freedom from eyeglasses and contacts, thanks to LASIK laser vision correction.
LASIK is one of the most rewarding procedures performed today. It is a combination of two proven procedures, using either the microkeratome or femtosecond (bladeless) laser to create a thin corneal flap followed by the Excimer laser to reshape the cornea, correcting vision. The procedure itself takes minutes and visual improvement is often noticed immediately.
