Expert Lasik Evaluations and Treatments in Chicago, IL

Many people with refractive errors resign themselves to a lifetime of glasses or contacts; however, it doesn’t have to be that way. Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is a sophisticated procedure that can improve one’s eyesight in a matter of minutes. During the procedure, an ophthalmologist uses a laser to create a flap in the cornea. He then carefully shapes the internal cornea and corrects the patient’s refractive error. This can have a huge impact on a patient’s visual acuity and dramatically improve such conditions as:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Myopia
  • Macular degeneration
  • And more…

What you should consider
