Laser vision help: Lasik is an acronym developed as a sort of marketing tool since it sounds so "cool". The technique of lasik involves using a laser to sculpt the front of the eye to a new lens shape which corrects the vision. It has been refined to the point of high predictability but is still surgery and not all surgery is perfect.
