LASIK
 

LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis) is the most common laser surgery for correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK uses a laser to reshape the cornea to improve the focusing power of the eye.  The physician makes a small flap in the cornea and removes some of the tissue exposed by the flap. The laser removes tissue from the cornea very accurately without damaging nearby tissues.
