LASIK, or laser in-situ keratomileus, is currently the most frequently performed form of laser vision correction. LASIK can treat both nearsightedness and farsightedness with or without astigmatism. During the procedure, a thin corneal flap is created using a delicate instrument called a microkeratome. The flap is gently folded back. Laser pulses are then applied to area of the cornea beneath the flap to achieve the desired correction. After the flap is delicately repositioned, the procdure is complete. Rapid visual recovery and minimal discomfort during the procedure have made LASIK an appealing option for vision correction.
LASIK is surgery. With all surgery, precautions should be taken to ensure safety and optimal outcomes. We encourage our patients to explore their options carefully. We invite your questions.
