Lasik is a procedure that refers to the creation of a corneal flap, followed by laser to reshape the cornea.
The flap is replaced. The goal is to improve vision and reduce or eliminate the need for contact lenses or glasses.

In brief: 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.
