LASIK (Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a laser surgery that can correct most cases of imperfect vision due to nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. With monovision or blended vision correction, LASIK can also correct presbyopia (the need for reading glasses).
In this procedure, the surface layer of corneal tissue is folded back from its usual position. The laser then gently reshapes the corneal surface and the surface layer is placed back in its original position where it bonds naturally.
The LASIK procedure takes about 5 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis. Most patients say they have no pain with LASIK and most can return to work the next day.
