What is LASIK?

Schedule a LASIK Appointment

LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is an outpatient refractive surgery procedure used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

With the LASIK procedure, your surgeon creates a thin flap in the cornea using a laser. The surgeon then folds back the flap and precisely removes a very specific amount of corneal tissue under the flap using a laser. The flap is then carefully laid back into its original position where it heals in place.  The procedure can be performed on both eyes the same day.
