Many individuals have turned to refractive surgery to eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses.LASIK, a form of laser vision correction, is now the recognized standard of care for refractive surgery in the United States today.
With the advent of laser technology, vision correction has entered a new era. Today, laser vision correction is recognized as the most important development since the introduction of contact lenses over three decades ago. Correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism with the excimer laser is the most technologically advanced method available to reduce your dependence on glasses and contact lenses. This exciting technology uses a cool laser beam of light to gently reshape the front surface of your eye. Over one million laser vision correction procedures have been performed, in 52 countries around the world, for more than a decade.
