One of the most popular ways to correct vision is with a procedure called LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis), which uses a laser to change the curvature of the cornea (outer window of the eye). LASIK has quickly become the procedure of choice for most patients because they recover quickly and have fewer side effects and complications than with other methods of vision correction. In fact, most LASIK patients notice a significant improvement in their vision soon after surgery. LASIK removes tissue within the cornea to treat low to high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
LASIK is for those who:
- Want to reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses or contacts
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Have had a stable eye prescription for at least one year
- Have no health issues affecting their eyes
- Have no signs of glaucoma or cataracts
LASIK procedures are performed right here in our clinic, in our Laser Surgery Suite.
