Question: I have a question about LASIK. What are the eye problems the LASIK solves? And, will I suffer from any of those problems in the future after the LASIK?
Answer: LASIK Eye Surgery is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism to help people see more clearly without being totally dependent on eyeglasses or contact lenses. In certain instances using a technique called Monovision LASIK, LASIK Surgery can help with some near vision focusing problems for those patients suffering from presbyopia which is associated with the normal aging process. LASIK is NOT a preventative procedure and thus if you were going to get more nearsighted you will get more nearsighted. If you were going to develop presbyopia you will still become presbyopic.
