LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.
While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Your optometrist will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs.
Being 20/20 isn’t everything. In order to have clear comfortable vision, our eyes must be able to adequately change focus (accommodate) and work together to keep a clear single image. Thankfully, accommodative and binocular vision problems can be corrected with vision therapy. If you get headaches, easily tire, or tend to skip lines while reading you may benefit from vision therapy.
