Procedure and treatments followed during the Lasik eye surgery

Lasik is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. In LASIK, a thin flap in the cornea is created using either a microkeratome blade or a femtosecond laser. The eye surgeon folds back the flap then remove some corneal tissue for the eye.

The flap is then laid back in place, covering the area where the corneal tissue was removed. Refractive surgery is the term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems regarding nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia to reduce your dependence on prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.
