If you have vision problems, but don’t like the hassle of caring for contact lenses or glasses, LASIK may be the option for you.
LASIK, or “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis” is a type of refractive surgery used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure is generally quick and pain free, taking about 15 minutes to complete for both eyes.
Before the Procedure
Protecting your eyes from ultraviolet damage caused by sun exposure is an important part of preventing eye problems later in life. Cumulative exposure to the sun’s UV rays is a common cause of cataracts and other eye diseases.
