A Bright Future For Lasik

The FDA first approved LASIK surgery 20 years ago, and today more than 10 million lives have been impacted by this procedure to correct their vision.  Researchers at Fischell Department of Bioengineering have created a new microscopy technique that could change the future of LASIK by removing the “surgery” aspect of the procedure. A surgeon will no longer need to cut into the cornea since the new discovery uses detailed measurements of how the eye focuses light compared to technology currently used which is based on only approximations.
