What is LASIK?

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. It is a surgical procedure done on the eyes to improve vision and reduce a person’s need for glasses or contact lenses. In LASIK surgery, surgeons use lasers to cut a flap in the cornea (the clear covering of the front of the eye) and change the shape of the cornea, allowing the light to focus better so that patients can see without having to wear glasses or contact lenses.
