What is Lasik ?
OFFLINE
LASIK is perhaps the most commonly performed refractive surgery procedure. The name LASIK is actually an acronymn for "laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis." During LASIK eye surgery a cool ultraviolet light beam is used to permanently change the shape of cornea that cover the front of the eye. After the cornea has been reshape, it will be able to focus light better onto the retina, providing a clearer vision to the patient.

Why Is LASIK So Popular?

LASIK has several advantages over other type of laser eye surgery procedures, there is relatively little pain involved and good vision can be achieved almost immediately, or at least within several days of the procedure. It is generally a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of common vision problems. People with nearsightedness or farsightedness can benefit from LASIK surgery. The excimer lasers used in Lasik procedures can also be used to correct astigmatism, by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more normal shape.
