What is LASIK?
LASIK is designed to correct multiple levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and reduce your reliance on corrective eyewear. It is a surgical procedure using laser energy to reshape the cornea according to the prescription of your eye.
We use an all-laser or bladeless LASIK procedure in which two lasers are used, one laser to create the flap on your cornea and the second to reshape the cornea in order to correct your vision. The first laser, known as the Intralase FS laser, creates a very thin flap on the surface of your cornea in which we lift up like a page in a book exposing the middle layer of the cornea. Next the excimer laser, known as the Technolas laser, is then applied to the middle layer of the cornea to correct your vision with remarkable precision. The flap is then laid back down to its original position.
