LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is an elective outpatient surgery which is used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. An excimer laser is used to gently reshape the the surface of the eye (cornea) to improve one’s vision without the use of glasses or contact lenses.
A patient interested in laser corrective eye surgery undergoes thorough testing utilizing noninvasive imaging techniques and medical evaluation of the eyes to evaluate one’s candidacy for the procedure. We do pre-operative evaluations and post-operative exams for LASIK in our office. Patients are referred to have the procedure performed at TLC Laser Center in White Plains.
