LASIK, which stands for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, is a laser eye surgery that reshapes the cornea in order to improve vision. Your cornea is the clear front surface of your eye.

LASIK utilizes laser technology to precisely reshape the cornea to allow light to enter the eye at the proper angle for improved vision.
