lasik

LASIK is the acronym for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, a type of refractive laser eye surgery performed by ophthalmologists for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The procedure is preferred to photorefractive keratectomy, PRK, because it requires less time for the patient's full recovery, and the patient feels less pain, overall. Many patients choose LASIK as an alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses.
