LASIK is the most popular surgical method to correct vision in the Jackson area and throughout the United States. A virtually painless outpatient procedure that takes only minutes per eye to perform, LASIK can treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It can even improve vision for people with extremely high prescriptions.
PRK is another method of surgically reshaping your cornea using the excimer laser. It was the first procedure to use the excimer laser to treat many types of refractive errors and is still the procedure of choice for certain patients.
In traditional LASIK, an instrument known as a microkeratome cuts a thin, hinged flap into the cornea. The flap then is lifted for application of laser energy that reshapes the eye for vision correction.
