What is LASIK?

LASIK eye surgery is the best known and most commonly performed laser refractive procedure to correct vision problems. LASIK is a procedure intended to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser.

Not a Candidate for LASIK?

You may be a candidate for PRK or other refractive procedures.

What is PRK?

The acronym for photorefractive keratectomy which is a procedure involving the removal of the surface layer of the cornea (epithelium) by gentle scraping and use of a computer-controlled excimer laser to reshape the stroma. Consult with your provider for more information.
