What is LASIK?

Experiencing the benefits LASIK surgery can be a life changing event! Countless long-time glasses and contact lens wears have freed themselves from their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.

Although LASIK will not prevent age-related eye changes, such as the need for reading glasses, or eye health and vision changes that may be related to diseases, the results are permanent. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities the day after surgery.

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, is the most commonly performed vision correction procedure. LASIK can treat nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism by permanently altering the shape of the cornea.

There are various surgical centers, and techniques used to perform the laser vision correction procedure. Blink Vision is pleased to recommend the TLC Laser Center. TLC provides patients with access to skilled surgeons, the latest technology, and the result is outstanding visual correction outcomes.Who is a great candidate for LASIK surgery?
