Most people have to wear glasses or contact lenses to achieve 20/20 vision. Many can’t leave the house without one of these corrective lenses, and some can barely even manage at home without them. This reliance on glasses or contact lenses can be inconvenient, especially for those who experience eye irritation from contacts, don’t like the appearance of glasses, or engage in watersports or outdoor activities that make them even more of a hassle.
That’s why laser vision correction has become so popular. With a quick, innovative procedure, many patients can achieve 20/20 vision or better, allowing them to leave glasses and contact lenses behind. The most well-known and frequently performed laser vision correction surgery is LASIK.
What is LASIK?
LASIK, “Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis,” is a revolutionary laser vision correction procedure designed to address common refractive vision errors. It can improve nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Dr. Wu calls this the “Instagram procedure” since patients are thrilled with the results the day after surgery and often eagerly share their happy news on social media, excited about their new glasses-free life.
Using advanced laser technology, LASIK enhances visual clarity and reduces or eliminates the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. This quick 15-20 minute outpatient procedure involves reshaping the cornea (the eye’s transparent front surface) to optimize how light enters and focuses onto the retina, thus improving overall visual acuity.
