LASIK Surgery is a refractive eye surgery that reduce or eliminates dependence on prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses. During a LASIK procedure, the cornea is reshaped by laser energy to adjust how the eye focuses, flattening the cornea, steepening the curve of the cornea, or smoothing irregularities.

It can correct common vision problems including:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness): when things are in focus up close but not at a distance
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness): when things can be seen clearly at a distance but not up close.
  • Astigmatism: when the eye does not focus light evenly onto the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye – the retina. Objects can appear blurry and/or stretched out.
  • Presbyopia: age-related difficulty seeing things up-close

If you have been wondering whether laser corrective eye surgery is an option for you, consult our experienced optometrists. The process starts with a comprehensive eye exam which includes a LASIK consultation. After checking the health of your eyes and other factors, we will determine if you are a candidate for LASIK surgery. If you are, we will then refer you to a LASIK institute in the Yorkville area and work closely with them to ensure a safe, successful procedure.
