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.
- 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.
