Since first performed in Australia in 1991, excimer laser eye surgery has continuously evolved, with new technology and advances in diagnostic techniques making it a safer and more precise procedure. Today, laser eye surgery has advanced to the point that 98% of post-operative results find that patients are able to drive legally without the use of glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK (Laser in Situ Keratomileusis) is the most common laser eye surgery procedure for people between 21 and 45 years of age. However, if your cornea is thin or misshaped, ASLA (Advanced Surface Laser) may be recommended. If you have an unusually high prescription, an implantable lens may also be an option.
