LASIK is the most frequently performed elective surgery in North America. This highly effective outpatient procedure is often referred to as refractive surgery or laser vision correction. LASIK is a procedure used to correct the eye with the following vision problems; myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism (the cornea is shaped more like a football).
