LASIK and PRK surgery are some of the most popular refractive surgical procedures performed today, with over 14 million Americans now enjoying clear vision! LASIK or PRK can greatly reduce or even eliminate your dependence on glasses or contact lenses and give you the ability to enjoy activities, sports and everyday life better than ever before!
Most vision disorders are caused by irregularities in the shape of the cornea, which is the outer part of the eye. LASIK or PRK has the ability to fix nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatisms by reshaping the cornea with a laser. Once the cornea is reshaped to fix your specific vision irregularities, you will able to see clearly without the aid of contacts or glasses.
It should be noted that LASIK or PRK does not correct Presbyopia, which is a stiffening of the eye lens that occurs naturally as we age and causes a need for reading glasses. You may still need reading glasses at some point.
