LASIK vision corection is a procedure used to correct vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. A special instrument called a keratome is used to gently lift a flap of corneal tissue, then laser is used to reshape the cornea. The corneal flap is carefully repositioned. This procedure allows light to focus more precisely on the retina, resulting in clearer vision. For many patients, LASIK means a new lifestyle - free from the restrictions of glasses.
If you are at least 18 years old and your glasses haven't required a significant prescription change in the past year, you may be a candidate for LASIK.
