LASIK or Lasik (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery
or laser vision correction, is a type of refractive for the correction of myopia, hypermetropia, and astigmatism. The LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses alaser
or microkeratome to reshape the eye’s cornea in order to improve visual acuity. For most patients, LASIK provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses.
