Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is an FDA-approved outpatient procedure that uses the excimer laser to reshape the cornea to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

The best way to determine if LASIK is right for you is a one-on-one consultation with a LASIK surgeon. LASIK is appropriate for people who:

  • Are at least 21 year old
  • Are not pregnant or nursing
  • Are in good general health
  • Have a stable prescription
  • Have no eye disease
