What does Lasik stand for?

LASIK is an abbreviated term for ‘Laser Assisted in situ Keratomileusis’.

It uses a combination of advanced microsurgery and Excimer Laser to re-shape the cornea.

Laser re-shaping of the cornea alters the focusing power of the eye, allowing it to become less dependent on glasses and contact lenses.
