LASIK Eye Surgery

Myopia, also known as near sightedness, is a vision problem experienced by up to about one-third of the population. Nearsighted people have difficulty when it comes to reading highway signs and seeing other objects at a distance, but can see for up-close tasks such as reading.

Nearsightedness happens when the eyeball is slightly longer than usual from front to back. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface. This condition can run in families and usually appears during childhood. This vision problem may stabilize at a certain point, although sometimes it worsens with age. Myopia may be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.

This procedure can reduce or even eliminate your need for glasses or contacts. The most common procedures are performed with an excimer laser. In laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) - the most common refractive procedure - a flap is cut through the top of the cornea, a laser removes some corneal tissue and then the flap is dropped back into place.

After this surgery, the majority of patients experience improved vision immediately. Even so, you must remember that complete LASIK surgery recovery can take up to six months as vision takes some time to stabilize following the procedure.
