Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)
For this procedure, a laser is used to reshape the eye's surface (cornea) to alter the way light rays enter the eye to achieve focus. This method of correction treats nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The surgeon cuts a flap in the stroma and then uses an excimer laser to remove material under the flap.
The LASIK procedure generally takes less than one minute per eye. LASIK is the most commonly performed refractive surgery procedure. LASIK advantages include a relative lack of pain afterward and the fact good vision is generally achieved near immediately or by the very next day.
