LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a surgical procedure to improve vision by using a laser to permanently change the shape of the cornea (the delicate clear covering on the front of the eye). This will reduce a person�s dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses.
LASIK falls under the scope of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
