LASIK (short for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgery is a type of eye surgery that can treat many common vision problems, from nearsightedness (myopia), to farsightedness (hyperopia), to astigmatism, and more. Because the price of LASIK surgery varies by procedure and individual treatment plan, it’s important to find an eye doctor you can trust who will inform you of your treatment options.
Eye Conditions and Laser Eye Surgery
In some cases, a person’s vision may be too far-sighted for LASIK surgery to correct their vision. This is a condition called hyperopia (or farsightedness). A less common but more serious condition, myopia (or nearsightedness), also can make it difficult for patients to qualify for LASIK surgery. Other factors that may disqualify a patient from undergoing laser eye surgery include corneal scarring and thinning, cataracts and glaucoma.
