LASIK is an effective treatment for people who are near-sighted (myopic) or have stigmatism issues. Expectations of success vary in line with the degree of nearsightedness. LASIK helps most with patients who have relatively mild nearsightedness. The more severe the eye sight issue the less certain you can be that LASIK will bring a major improvement. Someone with a major nearsightedness problem must bear in mind that they might even require additional treatments after undergoing LASIK. Optometrists call these additional treatments “refinements.”
