Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is an outpatient surgical procedure that uses an excimer laser to reshape the eye’s cornea (the clear window in the front of the eye) to correct refractive errors. Refractive errors are problems with the way the eye focuses light, which cause nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism. LASIK is used to surgically correct refractive errors, rather than wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Wavefront-guided LASIK is an enhanced version of LASIK. It uses a special device to precisely measure the eye’s unique irregularities and variations as well as your need for corrective lenses. This procedure has been compared to taking a fingerprint of the eye. You may benefit from this customized approach.
