More than half of the population of the United States requires some form of assistance in corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses. Many people have elected to get a LASIK procedure done to correct their eye problems.
LASIK or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery that corrects common eye disorders, such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. LASIK is performed by ophthalmologists using a laser.
The procedure is generally preferred to other eye procedures because it requires less time for recovery, and the patient feels less pain overall. Many patients choose LASIK as an alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses.
The procedure is usually not covered by insurance and many patients have traveled to Canada to get the procedure done due to the dramatically reduced costs as opposed to the procedure being done in the United States.
There’s now an advanced procedure of LASIK that has been approved for use by NASA for their space program. The procedure is blade free and can reshape your cornea to correct the refractive imperfections in your eye.
One company is offering a special iLASIK Video Contest to promote this unique new peocedure.
Contestants can make and submit a video in one of the following categories:
• “My contacts are getting in the way of my good time.”
• “My favorite sport or activity would be so much cooler with better vision.”
