For most patients, Laser In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most effective and least invasive method to improve natural vision and reduce/eliminate the need for corrective lenses. Performed by pioneering ophthalmologists since 1991, LASIK quickly evolved to become the amazingly effective procedure it is today. LASIK is so effective that it has become the procedure of choice of many ophthalmologists, due in part to its versatility, as it can be used to correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. LASIK also sports a remarkable recovery time - with few exceptions, most LASIK patients can return to work the day after having the procedure. (Read more on LASIK at our website.
