LASIK surgery can be successfully used to correct hyperopia or farsightedness. First, a thin flap is created on the cornea with the aid of laser or blade. The flap is then raised and laser is directed at the peripheral corneal tissue. The laser treats the corneal periphery and changes the cornea to make it steeper. The laser is controlled precisely to only remove the required amount of corneal tissue without causing any damage to the surrounding tissues. The flap is then re-placed, which makes quick healing possible.

In general, surgery is considered more dangerous than non-surgical solutions to problems. But is this always true? In the case of eye surgery, the answer may actually be NO! LASIK surgery in Michigan causes vision-threatening problems less often than contact lenses. This may be surprising to some, but any eye doctor will tell you the facts!

Even lenses that are FDA approved for overnight wear can be dangerous. A British study showed that overnight wear increases the risk of serious infection fourteen times over daily wear!

Contact lenses can cause infection, corneal ulcers, corneal abrasions, punctate keratopathy, and sub-epithelial infiiltrates. Commonly, a specific problem called Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC) is caused by overwear, and may be difficult to cure.

It is very rare for LASIK to resul
