What is LASIK?
LASIK eye surgery can correct a wide variety of vision conditions. Poor eyesight is generally caused by two things: an eyeball that is either too long or too short, and a cornea that is too steep, too flat, or an irregular shape. Research has shown that changing the size and shape of the eyeball itself is impractical and ineffective. Therefore, the development of lasers for use in eyesight correction has been directed toward changing the shape of the cornea. Our team of doctors offers LASIK eye surgery and vision solutions to clients in Joliet. Give our staff a call by phone at (815) 729-3777 to Schedule Appointment for LASIK surgery or other eye care services.

Even though vision improves without glasses, some patients may need enhancement, glasses, or contact lenses after LASIK. LASIK does not eliminate the need for reading glasses.
