Since LASIK surgery was introduced in 1992, more than eight million Americans have received this vision correction surgery. It was developed in response to the needs of people who disliked wearing glasses or contacts or whose active lifestyle made wearing them impractical. LASIK surgery can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, and it can free you from dependence on glasses or contacts. At St. Michael’s Eye & Laser Institute in Largo, FL, our LASIK equipment is the most advanced in the industry, and our eminently qualified physicians are among the most trusted in the Tampa Bay area. It’s little wonder that we have a 100% success rate with LASIK.
If you wear glasses or contacts and are wondering if LASIK is right for you, it would be helpful to first understand exactly what the procedure involves.
