LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK is the most common surgical procedure performed in the United States and is designed to eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses for clear distance vision. The entire procedure takes 15 minutes, and most patients can resume their normal activities (including driving) the next day. Recent advances in technology have made laser vision correction easier, safer, and more effective than ever. Restore Vision Centers is solely dedicated to refractive surgery, and we want you to be fully informed. If you have any questions, we are here to help; please do not hesitate to contact us.
What is LASIK?
LASIK, which stands for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, is the most popular form of laser eye surgery. It is a two step process: first a flap is created on the front of the cornea, then a laser is used to gently reshape the cornea underneath the flap to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Before the procedure starts, we will give you eye drops to numb the eyes, making the procedure relatively painless. Restore Vision Centers offers several types of laser vision correction so that every patient can obtain personalized, optimal results. Your doctor will guide you through the process and make recommendations as to which procedure is right for you.
