LASIK: A Truly Life-Changing Procedure
Before having laser eye surgery, such as LASIK, most patients who come to TLC Laser Eye Centers couldn’t imagine waking up in the morning and seeing the alarm clock without glasses. They never dreamed they’d be able to drive a car, watch a movie, or enjoy sports such as swimming and skiing without contact lenses. Since they were children, this dependence on glasses and contacts has shaped their lives, memories and the way they’ve felt about themselves.
Now, these same patients are pursuing life with new confidence, enthusiasm and ease, thanks to laser eye surgery. This remarkable laser vision correction procedure takes only a few minutes to perform but can have a tremendous impact on your life.
LASIK is the most frequently performed elective surgery in North America. This highly effective outpatient procedure that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism—all of which are often caused by focusing errors that can be corrected by changing the shape of the cornea. (A cornea can be too steep causing nearsightedness, too flat causing farsightedness or football-shaped causing astigmatism.)
