Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a laser surgery that can permanently reshape the corneal tissue to help you see better without glasses or contact lenses. It helps the light bends correctly and focuses on your retina.
During surgery, doctors use an excimer laser to produce a concentrated beam of cool ultraviolet (UV) light to remove a tiny part of corneal tissue. Interestingly, the first LASIK surgery was performed in the United States in 1991.

LASIK modifies the shape of the cornea using a laser. It mostly uses a precise tool to remove a thin layer of the corneal surface, except a small part that keeps it attached to the eye and is pushed back of the eyeball.
The laser procedure causes no pain at all, but after the treatment, patients may feel some discomfort that will go away after several days.
The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes.
The price of LASIK surgery varies from place to another, depending on the experience of the doctor, the technique used, and the place where the procedure is performed.
