About LASIK

LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. It is an elective, vision correcting surgical procedure with more than 15 years of clinical data supporting its safety and efficacy. LASIK uses laser technology to reshape the cornea to reduce or eliminate the irregularities that contribute to nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
