Based on your past medical history, current symptoms and vision tests, your doctor feels that you are a good candidate for LASIK surgery.
LASIK, which is short for laser in-situ keratomileusis, is an elective laser procedure that permanently reshapes the cornea of your eye in an attempt to correct your vision. During this presentation, we will explain exactly how this works.
The goal of LASIK surgery is to lessen and, in many cases, eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses. LASIK is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the world for vision correction. In 1998, there were approximately one million procedures performed in North America alone.
