LASIK is refractive eye surgery performed to correct or improve vision. During LASIK, a trained eye surgeon from Tidewater Eye Centers in Virginia Beach creates a flap in the cornea. A laser is then used to reshape the cornea, which corrects most vision problems.
For people with moderate vision problems who also have a good health history, LASIK can be a great way to correct eye problems. LASIK can be used for:
- Some forms of astigmatism
Your ophthalmologist can determine whether you are a good candidate for LASIK. Some people with health problems, dry eyes, diabetes or other conditions may not necessarily be a candidate.
Call us to schedule a LASIK consultation. Be sure to bring your health history and list of all medications.
