In the early 1990's, refractive surgery experienced the dawning of a new era with the advent of the Excimer Laser. The excimer laser uses a cool light beam to remove corneal tissue from the inner cornea. The beam of the laser is so accurate that it can cut notches in a single strand of human hair. Laser in-Situ Keratomileusis, LASIK, uses the excimer laser in combination with a laser generated flap to correct the distance prescription of both eyes in less than 15 minutes, and can help eliminate your dependency on contact lenses and glasses.
LASIK can truly change your life. You can experience the freedom of seeing clearly when playing sports, swimming, even something as simple as seeing the alarm clock when getting up in the morning.
Laser vision correction was first approved in America by the Food and Drug Administration in November 1995, although, the first laser procedure was performed in Germany back in 1987. To date, there have been over 30 million laser vision procedures performed throughout the world.
What Laser Vision Correction Means to You:
- No more hassles with broken eye glass frames
- No more fidgeting with contacts every morning and night
- No more showers without seeing the soap
