LASIK is a surgical procedure where the cornea of the eye is reshaped in order to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The acronym LASIK stands for Laser In Situ Keratomileusis because an excimer laser (a type of ultraviolet laser) is used. It is similar to other corrective procedures such as photorefractive keratectomy but provides several additional benefits – primarily a quicker recovery period.
