LASIK, laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a vision correction procedure designed to produce clearer vision.

 

The Procedure: A thin flap is created in the cornea, allowing access to the eyes’ supporting tissue à the cornea is reshaped à the corneal flap is laid back down à almost immediate recovery à clearer vision

The whole procedure only takes a few minutes per eye and is virtually painless.


What LASIK Helps Correct
:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism

 

Possible Side Effects: For the first 24 hours after surgery, you may experience light sensitivity, tearing, or a mild stinging sensation. Dry eye may also be temporary, but can be decreased with the use of artificial tears.
