What Is LASIK Surgery?

Author: Mao Eye Care |

LASIK, short for "Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis," is a highly effective refractive surgical procedure that involves reshaping the cornea to correct vision impairments such as myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism, and hyperopia (farsightedness). By remodeling the corneal stroma, which is the thick middle part of the cornea, LASIK aims to improve the way light enters the eye, allowing for clearer and sharper vision.

Over time, LASIK and other refractive surgical techniques have evolved and become increasingly sophisticated. Innovations like bladeless flap incisions, wavefront customization, and larger spot areas have made laser vision correction more precise and less invasive, resulting in improved outcomes for patients.
