LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a popular and minimally invasive eye surgery
used to correct refractive vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During LASIK, a precise laser is used to reshape the cornea, the eye's outermost surface, to improve its focusing ability. The procedure is quick, often taking less than 15 minutes per eye, and is typically performed with the aid of numbing eye drops.
LASIK has a high success rate and can reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses for many patients.
