What is Lasik

Lasik surgery is a laser eye surgery method for repairing flaws in the cornea, the outermost part of the eye, which serves as a lens. When an eye "sees" an object, the image of that object passes through the lens of the cornea to land on the retina, which is essentially the back interior wall of the eye. If there are flaws in the cornea, the image arrives distorted or blurry at the retina.

What Can Lasik Correct?

A cornea may suffer from a number of different flaws, called "refractive errors". In some cases, eyes may have more than one kind of refractive error, and each error causes a different type of vision impairment, the most common being:

  • Hyperopia also known as "farsightedness" is when you cannot see things close to the eyes clearly;
  • Myopia or "nearsightedness", is when you cannot see objects clearly at a distance;
  • Astigmatism is when a shape irregularity of the corneal surface causes poor refraction and distorts the image received at the retina.

Reasons to Get Lasik

Cost of Lasik - The cost of Lasik can vary depending on severity and medical history, however with financing options available, Lasik can be very affordable. Stop throwing money away by purchasing expensive glasses and contacts that are only a temporary solution to your vision needs.

No Down Time - Lasik is usually a quick procedure. The recovery time is also very minimal for most patients.
