What is LASIK?
LASIK is the most popular laser vision correction procedure that treats people who are nearsighted (myopia), farsighted (hyperopia), have astigmatism or who need reading glasses (presbyopia). LASIK can greatly reduce the dependence on glasses and contacts and return the freedom that comes with good vision.
During LASIK Dr. Waters uses a gentle laser to reshape the cornea (front of the eye) to improve a person’s ability to focus their vision. The procedure itself only takes a few minutes and is painless.
How do I know if I’m a candidate for LASIK?
The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for LASIK is to call our office and schedule a free LASIK eye exam. During this exam, Dr. Waters will take measurements and check the health of your eyes to help determine if you are a good candidate.
