    What is LASIK

    Understanding About


    LASIK is a commonly performed laser refractive surgery aimed at correcting vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During the procedure, a special cutting laser is used to reshape the cornea, which is the clear, dome-shaped tissue at the front of the eye. 

    Normally, the cornea refracts light precisely onto the retina at the back of the eye, enabling clear vision. However, in cases of vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, the light is bent incorrectly, leading to blurred vision. 

    LASIK surgery corrects this by reshaping the cornea to improve the refraction of light onto the retina, thus providing clearer vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

    LASIK eye Surgery FAQS



    The FDA regulates the safety and effectiveness of medical devices for their intended use. The FDA does not regulate the marketing of or any fees associated with the use of that product. Again, you may want to go to your library and see if there is a local community services magazine that may provide comparison information of services for doctors in your area.
    Confidentiality restrictions prohibit FDA from commenting on the status of a device under regulatory review, but you can try asking the laser company for this information.
    FDA does not provide comparisons between refractive lasers. FDA approves the safety and effectiveness of a device independent of any other product. However, you are encouraged to review the approval documents to assess the capabilities of specific laser systems and make your own comparisons. The approval number for each laser on the FDA-Approved Lasers page is linked to these documents, which provide additional, detailed information about the clinical trial results and indications for use. Discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor.
    Wavefront adds an automatic measurement of more subtle distortions (called higher order aberrations) than just nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism corrected by conventional LASIK. However, these “higher order aberrations” account for only a small amount (probably no more than 10%) of the total refractive error of the average person’s eye. Conventional LASIK increases higher order aberrations. Although wavefront-guided treatments attempt to eliminate higher order aberrations, results from the clinical studies have shown that the average aberrations still increase, but less than they do after conventional LASIK. In a few studies comparing wavefront-guided LASIK to conventional LASIK, a slightly larger percentage of subjects treated with wavefront LASIK achieved 20/20 vision without glasses or contact lenses compared to subjects treated with conventional LASIK.
    Data in the Approval Orders and related documents summarizes the outcomes from the clinical trials submitted to the FDA for each approved device.
