Laser Vision Correction

What is Lasik?

Lasik is a highly advanced, painless procedure combining conventional ocular surgery with state of the art excimer laser surgery technology, allowing for the correction of myopia (short-sightedness), hypermetropia (far-sightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia (reading problems). The entire LASIK procedure takes approximately 30-40 minutes.

How Lasik Works?

  1. Tiny pulses of laser light about quadrillion of a second each pass harmlessly through the outer portion of the cornea and form a uniform laser microscopic bubbles. This is the creation of a flap without blade.

  2. The corneal flap is gently folded to the side.

  3. The inner tissue of the corneal is re-shaped to correct refractive errors.

  4. After the laser treatment is completed, the flap is carefully repositioned and adheres to the underlying tissue without sutures.
