Laser eye surgery

Laser eye surgery is eye surgery using a laser rather than a scapal. Various types of laser eye surgery are used to treat refractive error:

Types of laser eye surgery include

  • ReLEx SMILE, which uses a femtosecond laser
  • LASIK, in which a knife is used to cut a flap in the cornea, and a laser is used to reshape the layers underneath, to treat refractive error
  • Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK, LASEK), in which the cornea is reshaped without first cutting a flap
