In brief: LASIK answer

Lasik is a very effective procedure for reducing the need for contact lenses and/or glasses.
However, as with any procedure, there are risks with lasik, including infection and inflammation (among others). On the other hand, contact lenses also have risks of infection and inflammation. Please consult your own doctor to determine whether or not lasik is an appropriate procedure for you.

In brief: Vision Correction

For the right patient, vision correction surgery can be life changing.
However, these surgeries should not be taken lightly. A very detailed, thorough consultation and eye examination with an eye surgeon is invaluable in deciding on whether to pursue surgery. Not everyone is a good candidate for surgery. If you are a good candidate, the procedure can be very rewarding for the patient.
