What Is LASIK Treatment?

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, is a type of refractive surgical treatment on the eye which reshapes the cornea to enable light entering the eye to be properly focused onto the retina for clearer vision. LASIK is a combination of a microkeratome to create a thin flap of tissue followed by excimer laser ablation to reshape the stromal tissue beneath the flap. These two refractive technologies help resolve myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

During your initial consultation the provider examines your eye while you explain your goals for the treatment. The provider will make recommendations for you based on your examination and current health conditions.
