LASIK

LASIK: Laser In Situ Keratomileusis

A thin flap of cornea is surgically lifted in a single sheet allowing laser treatment of the exposed inner surface. This reshapes the curvature of the cornea and allows light to focus on the retina, resulting in clearer vision. Following the procedure, the flap is repositioned and the corneal tissue quickly and naturally bonds without the use of stitches.

 

LASIK for Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Over 65 Million Americans are myopic, or nearsighted. Nearsightedness occurs when the eye is too long, or the cornea is too steep. This causes light rays entering the eye to focus in front of the retina, instead of directly on it, making distant images blurry.

In LASIK the laser is used to flatten the cornea, moving the focal point back onto the retina resulting in clear vision.
