The LASIK procedure

The surgeon first creates a corneal flap by using a computer controlled laser by delivering over millions of tiny, micron-sized bubbles that gently separate the layers of corneal tissue.

With the computer controlled laser, the surgeon can create a custom corneal flap with a desired thickness, size, orientation, and location. This allows the surgeon to have an unprecedented level of control, and allows more patients to qualify for LASIK.

Once the flap has been created, the surgeon can then proceed to lift it up, and another laser is applied to the exposed interior surface of the cornea. This will help the surgeon to reshape the cornea by removing tissue under the flap.

The flap is then repositioned over the treated area, serving as a natural bandage, and helps with the healing process.The entire surgery takes about 10 minutes per eye.
