LASIK surgery can fix these
eye conditions.


Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. It occurs when the shape of your eye causes light rays to bend (refract) incorrectly, focusing images in front of your retina instead of on your retina.


Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry. The degree of your farsightedness influences your focusing ability. People with severe farsightedness may be able to clearly see only objects a great distance away, while those with mild farsightedness may be able to clearly see objects that are closer.


Astigmatism is a common eye condition that can cause squinting, headaches, and blurry vision, poor night vision, eye strain, and the inability to focus on fine details. Depending on the nature of the patient's irregular eye curvature, vision may be more blurred in one direction than another. Symptoms of astigmatism may improve or worsen over time.
