LASIK, or laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, is an outpatient eye surgery used to treat astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. It is one of the most common eye surgery in the United States with nearly a million procedures being performed every year.

The specifics of the procedure vary according to the type of vision correction needed in the patient, but it begins with the surgeon creating a thin flap in the cornea to reshape it as necessary.
