LASIK Eye Surgery Jupiter, Florida
LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In-Siti Keratomileusis, and is one of the most popular procedures performed. LASIK is a great option for many people considering laser vision correction because LASIK can greatly reduce or even eliminate a person’s dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Imagine being able to enjoy your every day activities, sports, and events with clear vision!
Most vision disorders are caused by irregularities in the shape of the cornea, the outer part of the eye. The LASIK procedure has the ability to fix nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea with a laser.
