With Spring just around the corner, this is the perfect time to learn more about LASIK Vision Correction.
LASIK, which stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a popular surgery used to correct vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. LASIK works by reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, so that light traveling through it is properly focused onto the retina located in the back of the eye.
The cornea is a part of the eye that helps focus light to create an image on the retina. It works in much the same way that the lens of a camera focuses light to create an image on film. The bending and focusing of light is also known as refraction. Usually the shape of the cornea and the eye are not perfect and the image on the retina is out-of-focus (blurred) or distorted. These imperfections in the focusing power of the eye are called refractive errors.
While LASIK is extremely safe, it is still surgery. That’s why at Pepose Vision, we take pride in helping our patients learn all the facts before deciding to proceed. Please contact us to schedule a free consultation where we’ll explain LASIK in detail, perform some key eye tests to make sure it’s right for you and answer all your questions.
