If you’ve ever thought about having LASIK, you’re certainly in good company.
Freedom from the hassles of glasses and contacts is something many people think about on the daily.
How annoying is it to wake up in the morning and not be able to see the clock on your nightstand until you feel around and locate your glasses? How about your glasses slipping down your nose at spin class? Sweat in your contacts on your morning run? Can’t see to put your mascara on without your glasses, but can’t actually put the mascara on while wearing said glasses?
Do you know what can help with all those hassles? LASIK.
The popular laser vision correction procedure has been performed on over 10 million Americans since it first received FDA approval in 1999. And for good reason. LASIK offers freedom.
How Does LASIK Work?
LASIK (Laser-Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery commonly referred to as laser vision correction. It treats nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. If you’re wearing glasses and/or contacts, and you fall into one (or even two) of the above-mentioned categories, then LASIK may be the right choice for you.
LASIK works by changing the shape of your cornea, which changes the way images focus on the retina. It’s a two-step process: Creating a small flap on the cornea, and reshaping the corneal surface, all in just a few short minutes!
