What is LASIK eye surgery?
LASIK stands for “laser assisted in situ keratomileusis.” This
eye surgery is a popular refractive procedure designed for patients who
struggle with moderate levels of common eyesight problems:
- Nearsightedness or myopia
- Farsightedness or hyperopia
Refractive procedures correct vision problems, and LASIK is the most popular
and well-known of these procedures. In a LASIK procedure, the surgeon
uses a highly focused laser to create a tiny flap in the cornea. Then,
the eye surgeon crafts the shape of the cornea using the laser, with the
goal of righting the problem in the eye that creates focus difficulties
by enabling light to properly focus on the retina.
LASIK is considered a highly safe and effective procedure. Approximately
600,000 individuals undergo this procedure every year, according to the
United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Should I consider LASIK eye surgery?
The right candidate for LASIK:
- Is 18 years old or older
- Has healthy corneas
- Has not experienced any significant prescription change within the last year

discuss these matters with you at your first appointment. From start to
finish, the procedure usually takes around 10 minutes. Discuss your eligibility
