LASIK eye surgery is the best known and most commonly performed laser refractive surgery. LASIK reshapes the cornea to correct vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, and can be an alternative to wearing glasses or contact lenses.
At ICON Eyecare our team of doctors uses the latest laser vision correction technology, including Femtosecond lasers and the Wavelight® laser suite for true bladeless LASIK as well as Contoura® and Vario testing to ensure your LASIK treatment is tailored to you and your eyes.
LASIK is a simple and safe laser surgery that reshapes the cornea to help create naturally crisp images without the need for lenses. Some of the most common candidates for LASIK have vision issues like farsightedness (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. What typically causes a lack of clarity in vision is the cornea shape. LASIK will either flatten or steepen the curve of the cornea based on your vision issues.
Recovery time after LASIK is minimal. You will be able to return to normal activities within a day in most cases.
