The Lowdown on LASIK

 

How does LASIK work?

LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis) is an eye surgery designed to improve vision. Refractive errors that LASIK can improve include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.

Although LASIK only takes a few minutes to complete, the results of the procedure should last a lifetime. Most people enjoy clear vision as early as the next day.
