Laser correction of poor sight (LASIK)

Laser correction of poor sight (LASIK)

LASIK is an abbreviation for LASER Assisted In-situ Keratomileusis. It is the most commonly performed type of laser eye surgery to treat myopia (short sightedness), hyperopia (far sightedness) and astigmatism. A flap only approximately one tenth of a millimetre thick, is created on the cornea. The laser is then applied to the middle layer of the cornea (as opposed to the outer layer with Lasek syrgery). The laser takes only a few seconds to reshape the eye and correct your vision. The flap is then gently placed back onto the eye. The eye’s healing process is very efficient and will keep the flap firmly in place in just a few days following surgery.
