LASIK is a type of laser surgery to the eye intended to fix disorders with vision. Used for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.s one of the newest and fastest ways to correct eye-sight issues. There are many doctors offices and clinics with eye specialists who can perform this procedure without any difficulty.
LASIK is generally a preferred alternative to photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), as it is less pain-producing and requires less time to recover completely. Prior to LASIK surgery, the patient's corneas are evaluated with a computerized sophisticated scanning device and a corneal map is devised. This procedure also spots astigmatism as well as additional deviations in the cornea's shape.
The eye surgeon operates the lasers, which make all of the cutting. A flap is cut in the cornea using a laser or a blade. Afterwards, an excimer laser remodels the cornea. The laser vaporizes tissue without inducing damage to the eye. Although relatively uncommon, damaging complications could occur with LASIK or any type of eye surgeries.
