LASIK is a laser-assisted surgery for correction of refractive error. In this procedure, a thin laser beam is used to cut the front surface of your eye (the cornea) and change its shape. The new shape of the cornea will allow light beams to once again focus on the retina. Vision should be improved. If you are planning or eager to get rid of spectacles and contact lenses LASIK is the answer.
The LASIK surgeon performs few tests and assesses the patient before suggesting LASIK treatment.
Following is the eligibility criteria :
Zyoptix, the latest technology in LASIK procedure gives the patient a crystal clear and flawless vision by correcting your refractive errors in a customised manner. It minimises higher order aberration and glare than conventional LASIK.

Patients using contact lens have to stop wearing it for 2-3 weeks before the surgery.
