Introduction to LASIK
LASIK is the most commonly performed refractive surgery procedure which is short for "laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis."
Why is it so popular? LASIK has advantages over other vision correction procedures due to the fact that good vision usually is achieved by the very next day.
Both nearsighted and farsighted people can benefit from the LASIK procedure. With nearsighted people, the goal is to flatten the too-steep cornea; with farsighted people, a steeper cornea is desired. Excimer lasers also can correct astigmatism by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more normal shape.
The doctors at Dr. Jurgensen & Associates have extensive experience in the pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care of LASIK, even bladeless LASIK and other vision correction procedures. We are affiliated with Dr. Louis Probst at TLC Laser Eye Centers. He is one of the most prominent and experienced LASIK surgeons in the U.S. To find out more about TLC Laser Eye Centers visit their website at TLC Laser Eye Centers or Dr. Probst at his website LASIK with Probst.
