Finding a Cheap LASIK Clinic

LASIK Atlanta is one of the hottest tourist destinations in the United States, believe it or not. Each year, thousands of tour buses, filled to the brim with LASIK eye surgery candidates, flock to the city of Atlanta for consultations and examinations as to their LASIK eye surgery eligibility. Bay Area LASIK eye surgery is one of the closest competitors to the fashionable “Atlanta LASIK scene” but is really not even close in terms of booking or overall clients.

New LASIK treatment is performed with the same kind of laser used in PRK or photorefractive keratectomy. PRK was the first surgical procedure that used laser-assisted sculpting to reshape the cornea. After PRK was established, LASIK surgery was developed.

Excimer lasers were the first refractive laser systems approved by the FDA. Initially used in PRK to treat myopia, these were later applied for the treatment of astigmatism. Eventually, doctors would begin to use these lasers in LASIK surgery to treat other refractive errors. In recent years, LASIK eye surgery developments have allowed doctors to treat myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
