LASIK is a frequently performed laser eye surgery used to treat a range of vision problems including astigmatism, hyperopia, and myopia. LASIK is a procedure used to reshape the cornea to allow light to be correctly focused on the retina. This correction clears the vision of the patient without the need for corrective lenses.
LASIK is a relatively pain free procedure and can be completed in just about 15 minutes with an almost immediate improvement in vision. Those who are considered for LASIK surgery must have healthy eyes, as any conditions that affect how the eyes heal or respond to a surgery must be resolved before LASIK surgery is scheduled. Each candidate must be evaluated in order to determine whether or not LASIK is a good option for them. Those who are not a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery do have other options available to them such as LASEK and PRK surgery.
