Common Vision Problems
Approximately 285 million people worldwide are visually impaired.1 Certain eye conditions, such as nearsightedness and astigmatism, can affect your vision from birth. Glasses and contact lenses can often be used to manage these problems, but all the hardware and maintenance necessary can be inconvenient and expensive over the years.
Correcting Your Vision
LASIK is a form of laser vision correction that utilizes a laser beam to reshape your cornea, making it a more ideal shape for focusing light. Every year, approximately 700,000 Americans undergo LASIK laser vision correction.2 Of these patients, more than 90 percent achieve 20/20 to 20/40 vision and can perform most daily activities without glasses or contact lenses.3
