LASIK: A Comprehensive Guide to Refractive Surgery

LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye. Vision impairment, farsightedness, and near sightedness can all be corrected with this. LASIK refractive surgery is one of the most popular elective surgeries in the world, with over 20 million procedures performed worldwide annually.
