What is LASIK?

LASIK is an acronym for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. At Wellish Vision Institute in Las Vegas, NV, we use this procedure to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. LASIK reshapes the cornea so that light will focus directly on your retina, restoring clear vision. With the advanced technology we provide Las Vegas at Wellish Vision Institute, many of our patients see even better after LASIK than they ever did with their glasses or contacts.

At our practice in Las Vegas, we regularly see that patients have a lot of questions about LASIK (or PRK for LASIK noncandidates). In short, LASIK is one of the most commonly performed elective procedures in North America, and there’s little question as to why. It’s safe and effective, gives almost immediate results, is virtually painless, and has a very fast recovery time. The procedure itself typically takes less than 10 minutes – combined with the rapid recovery, LASIK is an excellent option for people who are on-the-go and living active lifestyles. LASIK is the ideal solution for many people suffering from vision problems. However, certain contraindications may exist, including chronic dry eye, which affects many people in Las Vegas.
