How LASIK Works
Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is a safe, reliable and painless way to improve vision by changing the way light is bent, or refracted, as it passes through the cornea, so that it properly focuses on the retina and allows objects to be seen clearly.
During the LASIK procedure, the surgeon creates a thin flap in the surface of the cornea with a device called a microkeratome. Keep in mind that we are using numbing drops so you will not feel any pain during the procedure, nor will you have that sensation of needing to blink. The corneal flap is then lifted and an excimer laser beam reshapes the cornea’s curvature to improve vision. Finally, the flap is placed back to its original position. The entire procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
The ideal LASIK candidate includes someone who is over 18 years old, has stable vision and has a healthy cornea that is thick enough for a flap. After undergoing the procedure, patients often experience rapid vision improvement and can sometimes return to work the very next day.
