About LASIK Surgery
Laser vision correction procedures, including LASIK, are designed to correct refractive errors. An eye affected by a refractive error has an abnormal curvature which cannot refract light properly, resulting in blurry vision. LASIK utilizes laser light energy to reshape the cornea so it can properly refract light, restoring sharp vision. The procedure is a safe outpatient procedure and can be performed in as little as 15 minutes. The visual improvement from LASIK is almost immediate!
Dr. Columbus has seen firsthand the life-changing benefits LASIK can have. Imagine not having to reach out for your glasses in the morning to look at your alarm clock. Or, taking a dip in the pool at any moment without having to take out your contacts. Through LASIK, Dr. Columbus can help you see clearer and enjoy life — without glasses or contacts.
