LASIK stands for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. LASIK is a type of refractive surgery that allows patients to see without or with a little help from glasses and contact lenses. During LASIK, the interior of the cornea (the clear outer part of the eye) is reshaped using a laser. This allows the cornea to reflect light onto the retina correctly, allowing for clearer vision.
