Refractive Laser Surgery Consultation
Refractive surgical procedures work by altering the shape of your cornea, changing the way your eye focuses light. These procedures often result in less dependence on or, in most cases, even the elimination of, glasses or contact lenses. The latest of the Laser Vision Correction procedures is LASIK, or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis.
LASIK, is a computer controlled beam of ultraviolet light than can be used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
Candidates for Laser Vision Correction
