LASIK stands for Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. It is an elective, vision correcting surgical procedure. 

More than 15 years of clinical data supports its safety and effectiveness. LASIK uses laser technology to reshape the cornea, in order to reduce or eliminate the irregularities on its surface which contribute to near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism.
