LASIK eye surgery is becoming more advanced and more affordable. More and more people in the United States are having LASIK and it has quickly become one of the most popular forms of vision correction. LASIK is not for everyone; before you decide to go through with LASIK surgery you should learn more about it and what it has to offer you.

As you probably already know, LASIK is Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. The LASIK procedure involves the use of an ultraviolet laser to reshape your cornea. It does this by vaporizing small amounts of the cornea’s tissue. LASIK surgery is effective in treating nearsightedness (myopia), astigmatism, and farsightedness (hyperopia).

Before undergoing LASIK eye surgery an ophthalmologist will evaluate your eyes to determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK. The eye surgeon will map out your corneas to determine how to shape them. The health of your eyes is evaluated to determine if LASIK is viable; if any problems are found it could preclude you from having LASIK surgery.

LASIK is an outpatient procedure; downtime for recovery is minimal. Most people are able to see clearly without their glasses or contacts immediately following the surgery. There are a number of side effects including problems with night vision and sensitivity to light.
