Are you considering LASIK to improve your vision, but wonder if you are a good candidate? You are not alone – more than 700,000 people in the United States underwent LASIK surgery in 2020. They are now enjoying improved vision without the use of glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK is a game-changer when it comes to clearer vision. The LASIK procedure involves the use of a special laser to modify the shape of the cornea, which is the transparent tissue covering the front of the eye. As light enters the eye, the cornea bends (refracts) and focuses the light to create sharp vision. If the cornea is not smooth or evenly curved, it cannot bend the light correctly, and this can cause a refractive error such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. LASIK corrects the surface of the cornea by removing a small layer of corneal tissue.
