What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a safe and effective refractive surgery procedure designed to correct common vision problems such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. It involves reshaping the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye, to improve the way light enters the eye and focuses on the retina, resulting in clearer vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

LASIK Procedure

During the LASIK procedure:

  • You will receive numbing eye drops to ensure comfort throughout the surgery.
  • A special instrument creates a corneal flap, which is then gently lifted.
  • An excimer laser is used to remove microscopic amounts of corneal tissue, reshaping the cornea to correct your specific refractive error.
  • The corneal flap is repositioned, and it naturally adheres without the need for sutures.
  • The entire procedure usually takes around 15 minutes per eye.
