What is a LASIK?
LASIK (Laser in situ Keratomileusis) is an extremely accurate, painless, outpatient surgical procedure used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
LASIK uses a laser to reshape the cornea, which is located at the front of the eye. This improves the way the eye focuses light rays onto the retina, at the back of the eye, allowing for better vision.
Each year, approximately 700,000 Americans have the procedure and live free of glasses and contact lenses! In 1999, Dr. Fier was the first in Martin and St. Lucie Counties to perform this surgery and certify other doctors in this procedure.
