What is LASIK?

LASIK is an acronym that stands for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. Here at Wellish Vision Institute located in Las Vegas, Nevada, we use this procedure to correct patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK restores clear vision by reshaping the cornea so that light will focus directly on your retina. With some of the most innovative and state-of-the-art technology here at Wellish Vision Institute in Las Vegas, many of our patients see clearer after LASIK than they ever did with glasses or contacts.

Many of our patients that we see here at Wellish Vision have questions in regards to the LASIK procedure. LASIK is one of the most commonly performed elective procedures in North America, and there’s little question as to why it is rated so highly. It is safe and effective, provides almost immediate results, virtually painless, and has a speedy recovery time. One of the other main positives is that the procedure itself typically takes less than 10 minutes. Combined with the rapid recovery, LASIK is an excellent option for active, on the go patient lifestyles. If you are suffering from any vision issues or problems, LASIK is an ideal solution for many. However, certain contraindications may exist, including chronic dry eye, which affects many people in Las Vegas.
