What Is LASIK Surgery?
Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is one of the most common laser eye surgeries performed today that corrects common refractive errors. An eye surgeon uses a computer-control laser, which creates an ultraviolet light that pulses energy at billionths of a second, to alter the shape of the cornea. When the cornea is reshaped, light can travel properly to the retina, improving your vision and correcting your refractive error. LASIK surgery can also help eliminate the need for glasses and contacts.
Conditions We Treat With LASIK
LASIK surgery can help resolve several vision problems, such as:
- Astigmatism – This condition occurs when the cornea is curved abnormally, distorting images and making them blurry at all distances. The distortion usually is noticeable after dark when there are bright lights.
- Farsightedness – Farsightedness makes it difficult to view objects up close.
- Nearsightedness – Nearsightedness is the opposite of farsightedness in which objects are blurry at a distance.
