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
  • Astigmatism

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

Other factors could determine your eligibility as well. Your doctor can discuss these matters with you at your first appointment. From start to finish, the procedure usually takes around 10 minutes. Discuss your eligibility for LASIK with our team of qualified Dallas / Fort Worth LASIK doctors. We offer initial consultations to patients, and your satisfaction and care are our primary focus.

Contact Key-Whitman Eye Center today to schedule your LASIK consultation.

LASIK consultations are offered at our North Arlington, Plano, and Dallas locations.
