If you’re like most people, you’re not entirely happy with wearing lenses to correct your vision. Maybe it’s the way your glasses steam up when you come inside in winter. Perhaps it’s switching back and forth from regular glasses to sunglasses in summer, straining to read your alarm clock when you wake in the morning, or getting dust under a contact lens at just the wrong moment. Maybe lenses are even limiting your choice of career, or the sport you play.
Whatever the problems with glasses or contact lenses, refractive surgery offers an alternative that could help you see better without them.
LASIK is one form of refractive eye surgery. Refractive surgery corrects your vision by changing the shape of the cornea, the transparent layer that covers the outer surface of the eye.
