Over the course of the past two decades, LASIK has become the most well known name in refractive eye surgery in the US. Millions of Americans who suffer from myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism (misshapen cornea) have achieved heightened improvement in their eyesight having undergone this wonderful and highly effective procedure. But for those of you who have yet to experience its transcendent results, you may be questioning how the procedure works.
There are many myths associated with LASIK Laser Eye Surgery. Some of the most common misconceptions are: Vision gets worse with age, so you have to get LASIK again later in life; if you wait a few years, LASIK will be cheaper; Astigmatism can’t be cured with LASIK; and, if you get LASIK you will need to begin using reading glasses.
