Overall, LASIK has proven itself to be safe and effective, to the benefit of the many people who can now go about their day and complete their duties, obligations, and favorite hobbies with crisper, clearer vision.

How can LASIK surgery improve my vision and change my life?

As one of the world's best-known laser vision correction systems, LASIK has changed countless lives for the better. And it can change yours, too, by reshaping the cornea to provide increased visual acuity across different distances, allowing you to do the things you have to do or love to do with the benefit of clarity.

LASIK tackles the common visual impairments that are surprisingly prevalent, as more than 150 million Americans have some degree of refractive disorder. These disorders include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. They result from the improper shape of the eyeball, which throws off the light entering the eye.

As a result, light that's improperly bent (refracted) through the cornea and the deeper-lying lens cannot land on the correct part of the retina. Sitting at the rear of the eye, the retina contains light-sensitive cells and sends sight signals (in the form of electric signals) to the brain via the optic nerve. Yet, an improperly shaped cornea or lens disrupts the process, leading to diminished or blurry vision at one or multiple distances.

Fortunately, LASIK can provide a quick, safe, and effective treatment to help you achieve clearer continuous vision at multiple ranges. The procedure is quick and virtually painless, with state-of-the-art topography-guided LASIK, aka Contoura Vision.

This advanced form of LASIK uses ultra-detailed imaging technology to improve precision and patient outcomes, helping you enjoy better eyesight while minimizing risks and offering a shorter, easier recovery.

All these benefits owe to LASIK's mode of action. By gradually reshaping the cornea, we can correct the various refractive conditions at a fundamental level so you can excel at everyday tasks with enhanced eyesight and enjoy clearer vision.
