Get Better Vision Faster with LASIK


LASIK, or Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, is the most commonly performed vision correction procedure. LASIK can treat nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism by permanently altering the shape of the cornea.


There are various techniques used to perform the laser vision correction procedure. This method uses the latest technology to allow the surgeons to reshape your cornea according to your specific needs.


A suitable LASIK patient:

  • Is 18 years of age or older.
  • Has had a stable corrective lens prescription for over a year.
  • Has a prescription within -0.25 to -12.00 diopters of Myopia or up to +6.00 diopters of Hyperopia (farsightedness) or has an astigmatism up to 6.00 diopters.
  • Has healthy eyes free from disease or serious aliments.
  • Is informed of both the risks and benefits of LASIK.
  • Knows the alternatives to LASIK.
  • Has a realistic expectation of how LASIK can improve vision.

What LASIK Can Do for You


LASIK surgery can help you return to an active life. According to the Eye Surgery Education Council (ESEC), more than 90 percent of patients who undergo LASIK experience vision improved to 20/40—the minimum vision standard for driving an automobile or playing sports without corrective eyewear.


Although LASIK will not prevent age-related eye conditions or diseases, results are permanent. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities the day after surgery. For more information about LASIK or to schedule an examination, please contact Vision World today.


You as the patient are co-managed by our doctors for many of your pre-LASIK testing, then sent off to finalize and perform the procedure with a highly trained ophthalmologist, and then returned to our care again the day after the procedure.  Therefore you are always in good hands and cared for properly.
