LASIK Eye Treatment

LASIK, an acronym for “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis”, is one of the safest, most effective, and popular elective procedures for vision correction.

Laser vision correction involves using a precise computer-controlled laser to gently reshape the cornea, allowing light rays to focus more directly on the retina and ultimately reducing your dependence on corrective lenses. The in-office procedure lasts only a few minutes per eye, and most patients can return to work the next day. Laser vision correction can correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism

  • Want to reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses or contacts.
  • Are at least 19 years old.
  • Have had a stable eye prescription for at least one year.
  • Have no health issues affecting their eyes.
  • Have no signs of glaucoma or significant cataract.

The goal of LASIK is to reduce a patient’s dependence on corrective lenses. It does not always create perfect vision. Some patients still need occasional reading or driving glasses after the procedure.  There are many benefits to laser vision correction, but there are also risks.  This is why we use the most advanced technology available to minimize risk and maximize accuracy.After a thorough eye examination, your doctor will let you know if LASIK is a viable option for your consideration.
