LASIK eye surgery is a safe procedure proven to be effective for correcting vision. Every year, millions of people choose to have this surgery in order to regain their sight. In case you’re not familiar the procedure, LASIK involves using a blade to cut a small flap on the cornea of the eye, after which the eye is reshaped so that vision is improved. The surgery corrects near-sightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Recovery time is relatively short; most patients can continue normal activities the very next day. About 90% of LASIK patients report satisfaction with the procedure.
But did you know that LASIK surgery can do performed without the use of blades? Bladeless LASIK is the latest in cutting-edge vision correction technology, developed after exhaustive research before being approved by the FDA in 1999.
