LASIK – basic principles
LASIK is a refractive surgical procedure that corrects refractive errors like myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia. LASIK corrects the refractive error of the eye by reshaping the cornea. It has gained tremendous popularity and is currently the most commonly performed refractive procedure because of its high success rate, rapid visual recovery and extremely low risk.
