Everything You Need to Know about LASIK Surgery
08/09/2017

augBlogLASIK, laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis, is a type of eye surgery used to correct vision in patients who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have an astigmatism.

During LASIK surgery, an ophthalmologist uses laser correction to reshape the cornea of the patient's eye. This process allows light to travel through the eye properly and focus onto the retina, located in the back part of the eye. LASIK is the most popular means for correcting vision and reshaping the cornea.

Howerton Eye Clinic offers LASIK surgery by top of the line, experienced ophthalmologists. Learn more about the procedure by continuing to read below.
