How can Lasik Surgery help you.

Myopia (nearsightednes) the eye focusing power is too strong, images fall in front of the Retina and vision is blurry.

Hyperopia (farsightednes) the corneal focusing power is too weak, images focus beyond retina and vision is blurry.

Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is more curved in one direction than the other like the shape of a football, images reaching the retina are distorted.

Presbyopia, usually first noticed between the ages of 40 and 45 is a condition in which the lens of the eye loses its ability to focus making it difficult to read and see objects up close.

Lasik (Laser in situ Keratomileusis) Epi Lasik (Epithelial Lasik)and Lasek (Laser epithelial Keratomileusis) are combined microsurgical and laser procedures that we use to correct Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia.
