Laser eye surgery

More than half of all adults in the United States use some kind of vision correction. Laser eye surgery may enable you to go about your daily activities — driving, working, playing sports — without glasses or contact lenses.

If the cornea is abnormally shaped, light rays cannot project properly onto the retina, resulting in blurred vision. Laser eye surgery procedures, such as LASIK or LASEK, correct cornea shape so light rays can bend (fract) properly, and eyes can focus better. Some vision issues that are treatable and often reversible with the help of laser eye surgery include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism (an irregularly shaped cornea).

Ascension's eye-care experts will work with you to determine if you're a good candidate for surgery and will explain the benefits of these modern, safe and painless procedures. With laser eye surgery, you can enjoy years of optimal vision without corrective lenses.
