LASIK is an acronym for Laser in-situ Keratomileusis, and is one of the most commonly performed types of laser eye surgery. This procedure is generally safe, effective, and has very few side effects. LASIK eye surgery has helped millions of people see clearly without dependence on glasses or contact lenses. It has given those with active lifestyles greater flexibility.For contact lens wearers, the hassles associated with contacts can be a thing of the past! LASIK is a quick and relatively painless vision correction procedure with an excellent track record of success. Proper pre-operative evaluations are critical to the success of this procedure for you.

Vision Disorders That LASIK Can Correct
Patients with nearsightedness, or myopia, are unable to focus clearly on distant objects, because light rays focus before the retina of the eye. This occurs either because the cornea is too steep or the eye is too long.
Symptoms of Nearsightedness:
- Difficulty seeing distant objects
- Squinting in order to focus
Individuals with farsightedness or hyperopia are unable to see near and distant objects clearly because the cornea curvature is too flat or the eye is too short.
Symptoms of Farsightedness:
- Difficulty seeing objects up close and at a distance
- Reading vision problems
Astigmatism occurs when the cornea, which should be shaped like a sphere, is instead shaped like an oval or the back of a spoon.
Symptoms of Astigmatism:
- Difficulty seeing both near and distant objects without squinting
- Blurred or distorted vision when reading
- Objects appear to have a shadow next to it.
