What Is LASIK?

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a laser eye surgery for correcting refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. LASIK is ideal for someone who wants to rely less on their glasses or contact lenses. This surgery can help improve your vision in approximately 30 minutes.
The LASIK procedure involves cutting a flap away from the front of the eye. Your surgeon then uses a programmed laser to reshape the cornea, removing precise amounts of corneal tissue.

After reshaping your cornea, your surgeon returns the flap to its original position, where it heals.

While LASIK can be beneficial, it isn’t for everybody. We’ll determine your eligibility for this surgery during your consultation. Overall, an ideal candidate for LASIK meets the following criteria:

  • 18 years of age or older

  • A low enough prescription

  • Good overall health

  • Healthy eyes

  • Ideally sized pupils

  • Stable vision for at least 12 months

  • Sufficient corneal thickness
