People with poor vision now have an alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses and contact lenses with a medical breakthrough in the field of ophthalmology. In the recent years, various research and trials have led to the development of LASIK(laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis).
LASIK is a type of refractive laser eye surgery used in correcting vision problems, like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The procedure is performed by well-trained opthalmologists.
Not everyone with a vision problem is a good candidate for undergoing LASIK eye surgery. There are many tests and exams required before a person is determined eligible. Generally, the patient who underwent LASIK only has a short recovery period and suffers minimal pain with the aid of medications.
There are some risks and complications that may occur with the LASIK eye surgery so it is best to talk to an ophthalmologist to discuss more about the procedure.
