Imagine getting up in the morning and seeing the alarm clock clearly. Imagine getting dressed or going to bed without taking out and cleaning contact lenses. Imagine playing tennis or golf without interference from your glasses or contacts. Imagine how your view of the world would change and how the world would view you without glasses or contacts.
LASIK is now turning dreams into reality for people all over the world that are nearsighted farsighted or have astigmatism.
Using the light of the Excimer laser, this procedure can reduce dependence on glasses and contact lenses and takes only a few minutes to perform.
What Is LASIK ?
LASIK is an acronym for Laser In-situ Keratomileusis, which simply means, “to shape the cornea within using a laser.” It corrects vision by reshaping the cornea (outer window of the eye) so that light rays focus more precisely on the retina, thereby reducing or eliminating refractive errors.
Using an instrument known as a microkeratome, a thin protective flap of corneal tissue is folded back. The Excimer laser then removes a predetermined amount of tissue from the inner cornea to correct the individual’s refractive error. The cornea is made flatter to treat nearsightedness, steeper to treat farsightedness and/or more spherical to correct astigmatism. The corneal flap is placed back in its original position where it bonds without the need for stitches. LASIK can treat low to very severe refractive errors.
