PHOENIX (May 5, 2015) –Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center, a leading provider of advanced vision care and surgery, has released The Complete Guide to LASIK to help patients understand the life-changing procedure.
LASIK is one of the most frequently performed elective procedures for vision correction in North America.
LASIK, an acronym for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, is an outpatient surgical procedure that uses a laser to gently reshape the front surface (cornea) of the eye to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The surgery adjusts how light rays are focused onto the eye’s retina, which improves vision. The LASIK procedure reduces, and sometimes eliminates, the need for glasses and contact lenses.
The Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center LASIK online guide is intended to help answer the most frequently asked questions around LASIK Surgery, covering everything from determining candidacy to choosing a provider, the importance of advanced technology, what happens before, during and after the procedure, as well as patient testimonials.
