25th Anniversary of LASIK
25 Years of LASIK, Over 25 Million Procedures Performed.
LASIK is widely the most commonly performed procedure for vision correction and is synonymous with laser eye surgery. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the LASIK procedure and there have been more than 25 million procedures performed worldwide.
Lasik can be a permanent alternative to eyeglasses and contact lenses!
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis or more commonly known as LASIK is a type of refractive surgery for correcting astigmatism, myopia and hyperopia. The procedure is performed by using a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye’s cornea in order to improve visual acuity. In most cases, the LASIK procedure provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses and contact lenses.
LASIK Continues to be one of the safest procedures.
LASIK has widely been the most studied refractive surgery procedure and continues to be one of the safest procedures available with a patient satisfaction rate of 92%.
In fact, I was one of the first Ophthalmologists to have the LASIK procedure performed on my eyes.
