Your quest for perfect vision may finally be over. For millions of people, LASIK has dramatically changed the way they see the world. Driving, swimming, golfing, reading the alarm clock from across the bed or simply looking at a sunset becomes clearer – without glasses or contact lenses. The important thing is to find the procedure that is best for your specific situation, and the right surgeon. LASIK, PRK, LASEK, and IOLs are just a few of the choices you have.
LASIK (Laser-In-Situ Keratomileusis) has now become the most common laser vision correction procedure in North America. It is an extremely effective outpatient procedure. The "cool" light excimer laser allows for an unparalleled degree of precision and predictability. Each pulse of the laser can remove 39-millionths of an inch of tissue in 12-billionths of a second. This enables an experienced surgeon to achieve remarkable accuracy while maintaining excellent control throughout the procedure.
