How it Works
LASIK is a groundbreaking vision correction procedure that harnesses the power of advanced laser technology to reshape the cornea — the clear front surface of the eye. This reshaping aims to correct refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, which cause blurry vision.
During the LASIK procedure, a thin flap is created on the cornea using a microkeratome or femtosecond laser. This flap is then lifted to expose the underlying corneal tissue, which is carefully reshaped using an excimer laser. The laser's precision removes tiny amounts of tissue to reshape the cornea, allowing light to focus directly onto the retina for clearer vision.
What sets LASIK apart is its ability to tailor the treatment to each individual's unique visual needs. Whether you're seeking freedom from glasses or contact lenses, LASIK offers a potential solution that has transformed the lives of countless individuals.
