Improve your vision with LASIK surgery

Your vision is affected by how well the cornea and lens project light onto the retina – the nerve at the back of the eye. If you have an irregular cornea, your vision can become blurry. Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) technology uses a precise laser to improve vision problems caused by nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism (an irregular shaped cornea that causes blurriness). LASIK surgery is a permanent corrective treatment that supports your long-term eye health. Ask your eye specialist if LASIK is right for you. Available at select locations.
