About 700,00 people have LASIK, also known as laser in-situ keratomileusis, performed on their eyes each year.
This painless and common procedure lasts about 20 minutes. During the procedure, the excimer laser gently reshapes the cornea to change the eye’s focal point. Nearsighted treatments flatten the cornea, while farsighted treatments steepen the cornea’s curvature. Treatments for astigmatism change the shape of the cornea from a football shape to more of a spherical shape.

LASIK may be a financial investment for you that you work into your budget. On average, the procedure costs between $1,000 to $4,000 per eye.
