Laser vision correction is a technique to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea using a concentrated beam of light. It can enhance the enjoyment of any work or recreational activity by reducing dependency on glasses or contacts.

Williams, who pioneered LASIK in the Minot region, will explain the screening process and the actual LASIK/PRK procedure. The free seminar begins at 7 p.m. People may register by calling TLC-EYES (852-3937).
