Laser Vision Correction
Until recently, the most commonly performed laser vision correction procedure was Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK). This is an advanced procedure used to treat all degrees of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK treats the inner tissue of the cornea with little disturbance to the corneal surface. LASIK patients generally see clearly the next day and experience minimal discomfort.
In 1998, the FDA approved excimer laser technology for the treatment of farsightedness. NEI is the first center in the area equipped with the laser and expertise to provide this service.
