About LASIK Eye Surgery
Chances are, you’ve heard of LASIK. But do you know what it does or what the procedure entails? LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a form of laser vision correction, one of the most popular elective surgeries in the U.S. Using a laser beam, an eye surgeon can reshape the cornea of your eye to make it more ideal for focusing light, thus improving your vision.

Do you want better vision? Laser vision correction may be able to give you the vision you’ve always wanted, without the need for contacts or glasses. A lot has happened in the last 20 years. Better results and technology due to advances of topography-guided LASIK, which is a more custom procedure that maps your eye’s unique shapes and curves. Also, the latest advancement in technology SMILE which is an acronym that stands for Small Incision Lenticule Extraction. SMILE is a minimally invasive procedure providing LASIK-like outcomes.

Good vision is something everyone wants, but not everyone has naturally. Eye conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, also known as refractive errors are very common.

Eyeglasses and contact lenses offer a suitable solution. However, some people consider them inconvenient. They want to see clearly without visual aids.
