LASIK is one of a number of laser assisted procedures to reshape the cornea in order to correct optical blur. Prior to surgery, anaesthetic drops will be applied to your eyes. Your Doctor will place a device on your eye called a microkeratome in order to create a uniform thin flap of the cornea. Your Doctor will locate the edge of the flap and gently lift it away to expose the area requiring treatment. A special sponge may be used to remove excess moisture and debris. The laser is then aligned with the centre of the pupil. Laser treatment with modern-day lasers lasts less than a minute! The flap is then lifted over the cornea. Finally, your Doctor will use a special sponge to accurately centre the flap. Join the millions opting for safe, long-term vision correction.
