LASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person's dependency on glasses or contact lenses.  It can treat a broad range of prescriptions such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism.  

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser. A knife, called a microkeratome, is used to cut a flap in the cornea. A hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is folded back revealing the stroma, the middlesection of the cornea. Pulses from a computer-controlled laser vaporize a portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced.

Dr. Jennifer Carr O.D. takes a conservative approach to help to determine if LASIK is a good solution for you.  She can help to refer you to an experienced surgeon and can be involved in your pre- and post-operative care.
