International Guideline

Today, Lasik is a common and popular procedure in which lasers are used to reshape the cornea. LASIK is an abbreviation for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, which is simply referred to as laser eye surgery. This is an operation that an ophthalmologist performs using a Lasik Laser Technology in order to change the shape of the patient’s cornea. This type of surgery is used in order to improve vision. Lasik Surgeons who follow the International guideline for Lasik surgery take great care in order to ensure that their patients will have the best possible outcome.

LASIK has become a popular choice for those who wish to improve their vision. The surgery is fairly quick and painless, and has a high success rate. In fact, according to the American Refractive Surgery Council, over 96% of patients who have the surgery experience improved vision.
