About LASIK Surgery
Vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism occur as a result of an irregularly shaped cornea. The cornea is unable to focus light when it is not shaped properly. This inability to focus is what leads to vision problems that require glasses and contact lenses.
LASIK laser correction corrects these refractive errors by changing the shape of the cornea with a laser. During LASIK, the surgeon first makes a thin flap in the surface of the cornea. This causes minimal discomfort, if any, and takes just minutes. Most patients are able to see clearly within hours of LASIK surgery.
