LASIK Consultation

Reshaping the Cornea - Lasik Surgery
Before you decide to go through with corrective LASIK surgery, speak to our doctors at Chippewa Eye Centre, Inc. in St. Louis, Missouri. During your consultation, we review your optical history and determine the best course of action for you to take.


LASIK (Laser Assist In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a refractive surgery procedure that is performed with an excimer laser, which uses a cool, ultraviolet light beam to reshape the cornea. LASIK involves creating a flap in the front surface of the cornea. The flap is then folded out of the way and the laser is applied beneath the flap to reshape the cornea. By reshaping the cornea, light can be focused on the retina, which provides clearer vision than before. Both nearsighted and farsighted individuals, as well as people with astigmatism, can benefit from LASIK.
