What is LASIK?

< Back to FAQ

LASIK is an elective laser eye surgery procedure used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.  It stands for laser in situ keratomileusis. 

LASIK is a permanent form of vision correction. It reshapes the surface of the eye, the cornea, and this will have a lasting impact on your vision. It changes your eyes and permanently corrects the prescription you had before the surgery. According to recent statistics , after LASIK, 99 percent of patients achieve better than 20/40 vision and more than 90 percent achieve 20/20 or better.
