What is LASIK?
LASIK, an acronym for Laser-Assisted
In Situ Keratomileusis, is a refractive surgery procedure performed by
Ophthalmologists (MD/DO) intended for correcting the vision in order to
reduce a person's dependency on corrective devices, such as glasses or
contact lenses. The procedure is usually a preferred alternative to PRK, or
photorefractive keratectomy, as it requires less time for full recovery, and
the patient experiences less pain overall.
