LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses) is the most common corrective eye surgery for astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. This procedure uses a laser to permanently reshape the cornea for clearer vision and removes the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses for most patients. LASIK eye surgery is a permanent procedure that cannot be reversed.
A blade or laser are used to cut a flap in the cornea with a hinge at one side, folding the flap back to reveal the stroma. A laser is then used with computer precision to alter the stroma before the flap is put back.
In addition to myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism, many patients seek out LASIK surgery to combat the natural phenomenon called presbyopia.
