What is Lasik?

LASIK stands for laser-in situ keratomileusis, a popular surgery used to correct vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism by reshaping the cornea using a laser beam.

The percentage of our patients achieving 6/6 or 20/20 vision is 97.5%.

How does it work ?

Lasik surgeon uses a mechanical surgical tool called a microkeratome to create a thin, circular flap in the cornea.

The surgeon then folds back the hinged flap to access the underlying cornea and removes some corneal tissue using an excimer laser.

This highly specialized laser uses a cool ultraviolet light beam to remove microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea to reshape it so it more accurately focuses light on the retina for improved vision.

After the laser reshapes the cornea, the flap is then laid back in place, covering the area where the corneal tissue was removed. Then the cornea is allowed to heal naturally.

Laser eye surgery requires only topical anesthetic drops, and no bandages or stitches are required.

Procedure:

As shown below a thin protective flap of corneal tissue is folded back. The Excimer laser then reshapes tissue from the inner cornea to correct the individual’s refractive error with exceptional accuracy. The corneal flap is placed back in its position where it bonds.

How Is LASIK Surgery Works?

Lasik surgeon uses either a mechanical surgical tool called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser to create a thin, circular flap in the cornea. The surgeon then folds back the hinged flap to access the underlying cornea and removes some corneal tissue using an excimer laser.

This highly specialized laser uses a cool ultraviolet light beam to remove microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea to reshape it so it more accurately focuses light on the retina for improved vision. After the laser reshapes the cornea, the flap is then laid back in place, covering the area where the corneal tissue was removed. Then the cornea is allowed to heal naturally.
