What is LASIK?
Laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a procedure that reshapes the cornea, helping to more clearly focus what you see.
What are the benefits of LASIK?
LASIK (laser vision correction) is able to correct many levels of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. These corrections can be treated to effectively reduce your dependency on eye glasses and contacts.
Is LASIK Surgery Painful?
LASIK surgery is often painless and will take less than 30 minutes. During the surgery, you may feel some pressure on your eye. After surgery, you may experience your eye(s) feeling irritated or itchy and your eyes may water; however, by not rubbing or touching your eye and using eyedrops as directed by your doctor, these symptoms will soon pass.
If I would like to have LASIK Surgery what do I do?
