LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea. Patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or astigmatic may benefit from this type of procedure.
While millions of patients have seen successful results from LASIK, the procedure is not right for everyone. Your optometrist will need to thoroughly examine your eyes to determine which type of vision correction best fits your needs.
Myopia or nearsightedness is caused be the elongation of the axial length of the eye. This results in blurry far vision. Certain factors such as genetics, environment, and activities can cause myopia to progress rapidly early in life. Treatments that have been shown to slow the progression of myopia include: bifocal/progressive glasses, bifocal contact lenses, and topical cycloplegic medications. Please ask our doctors about myopia control treatment options.
