LASIK surgery information and locations

LASIK is a newer kind of surgery used to correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism so that patients don’t need to use glasses any more. Surgeons employ lasers to reshape the cornea. This is a same day procedure.
With LASIK, the doctor will reshape the cornea to enable light to focus onto the retina in order to have a clearer vision.
Surgeons give the patient medication to numb the eye, then place a small suction ring before cutting a small flap over the cornea utilizing special tools. A programmed laser then makes small cuts unto the cornea depending on the condition. Once the laser is done, the flap is put into place.
