Technology Description: 

Fewer and fewer people now need eyeglasses or contact lenses thanks to laser vision correction surgery. Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis or LASIK is the most widely performed surgical procedure. It uses a laser and eye-tracking device to reshape the cornea and is based on technology used to assist spacecraft in delicate docking maneuvers. This enables LASIK to provide unmatched precision.
