What can LASIK correct?
LASIK for Improved Vision
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure performed by ophthalmologists to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. During surgery, the cornea is reshaped in order to change the eye’s focusing power so the need for glasses or contact lenses can be reduced or even eliminated.
- If nearsighted, the goal is to flatten the cornea
- If farsighted, the goal is to make the cornea steeper
- With astigmatism, the goal is to smooth an irregularly-shaped cornea
LASIK is the fastest growing and most accepted form of laser vision correction; however, LASIK cannot correct vision for everyone. The only way to know for sure is to schedule a free LASIK Consultation with the team at Cleveland Clinic Sugarbush Eye and Laser Centre. Contact us today.
