What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

It is the most popular, and most performed, laser vision correction procedure available to patients today. Since LASIK eye surgery was first approved by the FDA nearly 30 years ago, more than 40 million LASIK procedures have been performed worldwide. Because of decades of experience and the more than 7,000 clinical research studies, LASIK remains an excellent option for vision correction for those who are good candidates.

Having a thorough eye exam and consultation with a highly qualified surgeon is how you find out if you are a good candidate for LASIK or other laser vision correction procedures. It is important because, on average, 15-20 percent of patients are not considered candidates for LASIK (but might be for another vision correction procedure).

  • LASIK is FDA approved.
  • A stable prescription, meaning your prescription has not changed in two years.
  • You and your eyes should be healthy and free of diseases, injuries, and infections.
