LASIK was approved as a vision correction procedure by the FDA in 1999. It is performed to help people with refractive errors in their eyes (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism) see clearly without glasses or contacts. Millions of people have had LASIK worldwide and many of those have achieved 20/20 vision or better after the procedure.
At Dakota Eye Institute, Dr. Paul Selid will evaluate your refractive error, vision goals and eye health to determine if you are a safe LASIK candidate. Simply having a refractive error is not the only condition needed for LASIK at Dakota Eye. You must meet certain requirements for this to be a safe and effective procedure for you.
