What is LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK ( Laser In-situ Keratomileusis) is a refractive eye surgery that uses laser technology to reshape the cornea. This procedure is designed to treat refractive errors and improves vision. With the help of Lasik, one can reduce or eliminate the need for contact lens or glasses.

  • Wavefront-guided

  • All-Laser LASIK


What conditions can LASIK Eye Surgery treat?

Lasik is indicated to treat refractive errors and few of them are:

  • Myopia - Nearsightedness
  • Hyperopia - Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism - blurred vision due to irregular curvature in the lens of the eyes

What are the preparations to be taken before Lasik?

  • Few initial tests such as corneal mapping, measuring corneal thickness, eye pressure, and pupil dilation are performed before the surgery.
  • Should eat light food and take the medications as prescribed by the doctor.

How does LASIK surgery perform?

  • During LASIK Eye Surgery, the patient is given eye drops that are local anesthesia to numb the area and the surgery takes around 10-15 minutes to be completed.
  • Initially, eye surgeons create a thin corneal flap with the help of an instrument called a microkeratome.
  • Then, the surgeon draws the corneal flap to expose the underneath corneal tissue for reshaping.
  • With the help of an excimer laser, the reshaping of corneal tissue will be done.
  • The corneal flap is gently placed back to the position on the cornea without sutures.
  • After the surgery, surgeons might prescribe eye drops to avoid eye drying, infection, and inflammation.
