LASIK treats three types of vision problems:
* Myopia (nearsightedness), which causes blurred distance vision.
* Hyperopia (farsightedness), which causes blurred vision of objects close to the eyes.
* Astigmatism, in which the cornea distorts the image.
There are some conditions which cannot be treated with LASIK eye surgery, and some people whose eyes do not make them good candidates for LASIK vision correction. If you have dry eye disease; if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning a pregnancy; or if your eye defects are extreme, a good eye surgeon may recommend another form of vision correction for you.
