LASIK surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can help correct vision defects. It involves reshaping the cornea to improve focus and clarity of vision. During the procedure, an ophthalmologist will use a laser to make tiny incisions in the cornea, allowing for reshaping and improved vision.
The entire process typically takes about 15 minutes and is often performed on an outpatient basis. After LASIK surgery, a patient’s vision can be greatly improved within 24 hours and complete recovery within two weeks.
