Everything you need to know about LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK eye surgery is the buzz word today. An acronym for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, LASIK surgery treats refractive errors of the eye. It basically treats astigmatism, near-sightedness (myopia) and far-sightedness (hyperopia). This surgical procedure helps the patients get rid of eye glasses or contact lenses permanently.
An improvement on the laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), LASIK treatment, as the name suggests, uses laser to reshape the cornea without causing any harm to the neighboring cell layers of your eye. Though the effects of LASIK are permanent, one needs to keep in mind the fact that every individual's eye condition keeps changing internally. This is the main reason why it is usually recommended to go for LASIK surgery after the major eye changes of one's life has taken place.
