Lasik Surgery in Long Beach
LASIK is the most performed refractive surgery procedure. Approximately 700,000 LASIK procedures are performed each year in the United States.
What is LASIK?
LASIK, stands for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis. Commonly referred to as laser eye surgery, the procedure involves creating a ‘flap’ on the front of the eye (the cornea), removing or ‘ablating’ the underlying tissue to reshape it, then laying the flap back down over the area of the cornea that has just been reshaped. It is relatively painless and vision is almost instantly improved. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can all be corrected within certain parameters.
We perform LASIK using the latest Wavefront technology, which allows for the most accurate results when performing pre-operative measurements. The result is clearer vision without glasses for most patients.
