LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) and PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) are surgical procedures that use a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.
While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK or PRK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Your optometrist will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs.
