When the cornea, or center of the eye, is improperly shaped, light cannot focus properly on the retina. As a result, your vision can become distorted and undependable. Before LASIK, the only solution was glasses or contact lenses, which are custom-shaped to compensate for these irregularities.
The LASIK procedure requires access to the inner layers of the cornea, and this can be achieved with or without a special blade called a microkeratome. The requisite "flap" in the corneal tissue can also be created using a laser.
Dr. Kung is an innovator in the field of LASIK eye surgery, and his offices are equipped with multiple laser platforms, allowing greater customization of treatment than most ophthalmology practices. Your vision is an invaluable asset, and your needs are one-of-a-kind. If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, choose an ophthalmologist who can deliver precisely the treatment you require.
