In 1989, Gholam Peyman, MD was granted a US patent for a method of modifying the corneal curvature of the eye with a surgical procedure. A flap would be cut in the cornea and pulled back to expose the corneal bed. The exposed surface would be ablated and the flap replaced. Today, further enhancements to the Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) continue to advance and minimize risks. LASIK in Bloomington IL is the safest way to perform eye surgery.
LASIK is commonly referred to as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction. It is a refractive surgical procedure used to correct myopia, hypermetropia, and astigmatism. For many cases, LASIK surgery has provided a more permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK is a significant improvement of radial keratotomy in the surgical treatment of refractive errors of vision. As of 2011, over 11 million LASIK procedures have been successfully performed in the United States.
