Operations and procedures

The LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) procedure uses either a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser that forms an epithelial stromal flap permitting the underlying corneal tissue to be ablated to correct vision; the flap then recovers the area of the cornea. Correction of vision is usually degrees of myopia (10 diopters).

Complications are lowest with more experienced surgeons.
