LASIK, Correcting Your Vision

With the advent of LASIK, or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, wearing glasses or contact lenses can be a thing of the past for many. LASIK involves cutting a flap of cornea, then using a computer-guided laser to shave the inner surface of the cornea to remold the contour. This allows for light to refract differently, allowing it to match up with the back of the eye and produce a clear image. The flap is then resealed and allowed to heal for a day. Complication rates are low and can be managed by an ophthalmologist. The procedure itself is performed by a license-trained ophthalmologist with years of residency training.
