LASIK eye surgery is the most common form of vision correction surgery. The laser procedure makes precise corrections of the cornea to restore vision for those who are nearsighted, farsighted, or who have astigmatism. While results vary, most patients report 20/20 vision after LASIK eye surgery.
LASIK utilizes lasers to reshape the cornea to improve how the eye focuses. The degree of reshaping is based on the thickness and curvature of your cornea, which is measured with a 3D map of your eye, much like how a topographical map that shows mountains and valleys. The details from the map are taken into account along with information about the type and degree of vision needed for optimal results.
