LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK eye surgery is one of the most common laser vision correction surgeries used to treat vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK is short for Laser in Situ Keratomileusis, and as its name suggests, it uses a laser to correct common vision problems.

 

LASIK eye surgery is widely seen as one of the safest and most convenient elective medical procedures available. It offers one of the quickest and easiest recovery periods– most people are back to their normal routines after only 24 hours. While glasses and contact lenses offer a temporary solution to vision problems, LASIK eye surgery provides a permanent solution by reshaping the cornea to correct refraction. It can significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses, thereby transforming the quality of life for its patients.

How Does LASIK Eye Surgery Work?

LASIK eye surgery works to improve vision by changing the shape of the cornea.

It is a refractive surgery, meaning that it works by adjusting the way light is processed by the eye, which in turn improves vision.

 

Many common vision errors occur because light does not filter properly through the cornea, the transparent, dome-shaped tissue covering the front of the eye. It is responsible for bending and refracting light in order to focus it into a precise image on the retina in the back of the eye. When light bends incorrectly, however, it prevents a precise image from forming, causing vision problems.

 

LASIK eye surgery offers a permanent solution to vision issues by reshaping the cornea itself to ensure that light is refracted correctly.
