* These numbers reflect the laser eye surgery results after one treatment. 20/40 is the minimum legal requirement to drive without glasses or contact lenses.

It is important to note that mixed astigmatism is an uncommon condition where the amount of astigmatism is greater than the amount of hyperopia. This is one of the most difficult vision problems to correct; however, with scanning-spot and tracking technology, LASIK MD surgeons are achieving excellent results.

Laser eye surgery is not only safe, it can also improve your day and night vision and most important, it can improve your life. At LASIK MD, your vision is our top priority.
