Lasik surgery

If you are sick of wearing eyeglasses or lenses, you might be considering Lasik surgery. It is a progressive eye surgery.

In general, 100% vision or better is attained by most LASIK eye surgery patients, which is adequate for many activities. However, the majority of individuals ultimately require glasses for reading or nighttime driving as they age.

What is involved in LASIK eye surgery?

When you have nearsightedness, also known as myopia, you can clearly see close-up items, but distant ones appear hazy. When you have farsightedness (hyperopia), you can see distant objects well, but close-up items appear hazy. A general visual blur is a result of astigmatism. Astigmatism occurs when the cornea flattens or bends irregularly, disrupting the focus of both near and far vision.

Traditionally, a person with hazy vision would use glasses or contact lenses to bend (refract) light rays. The cornea (the transparent dome-shaped tissue at the front of your eye) can be reshaped in order to achieve the required refraction and vision correction.
