LASIK is a refractive eye surgery that utilizes an excimer laser to reshape the corneal surface, correcting your vision by enabling light to focus on the retina sharply. This procedure is typically a good option for those who are nearsighted, astigmatic, or farsighted and is highly effective and extremely safe.
Over 20 million LASIK procedures have been performed in the United States to date with extremely high satisfaction rates as people are able to leave their glasses and contacts behind. However, some patients are better candidates for other types of laser vision correction such as Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK). Dr. Stackhouse will help determine the right procedure based on your individual needs.
