Lasik is an acronym that stands for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis.
Lasik surgery is done by ophthalmologists using a laser to correct myopia, hyperopia, or an astigmatism.
There are other surgeries that offer similar results as lasik. However, lasik offers faster recovery times.
Dry eyes is one of the biggest complaints from patients regarding lasik surgery. In fact, it is sometimes a permanent issue that patients may have to face if they opt for this vision corrective surgery.
The FDA has approved lasik for patients aged 18 and over and with a stable eye prescription for a minimum of a year.
You'll find bloggers talking about lasik surgery at sites like Astigmatism Contact and Contact Lens City.
