Chances are, you’ve heard of LASIK. But do you know what it does or what the procedure entails? LASIK is a form of laser vision correction offered by Snead Eye Group, one of the most popular elective surgeries in Southwest Florida. Using a laser beam, an eye surgeon can reshape the cornea of your eye to make it more ideal for focusing light, thus improving your vision.
Laser vision correction is one of the most popular elective surgeries in the U.S. today. It can give patients with common vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, improved vision. This can help to reduce their dependency on glasses or contact lenses, and in some cases eliminate their dependency entirely.
LASIK has become the most widely performed and accepted form of laser vision correction. In one survey, 87 percent of LASIK patients said they would recommend it to their friends. There is no minimum amount of correction required for LASIK, and speaking to your eye doctor about it can be the first step to changing how you see the world forever.
