LASIK, laser in-situ keratomileusis, is a vision correction procedure designed to produce clearer vision.
The Procedure: A thin flap is created in the cornea, allowing access to the eyes’ supporting tissue à the cornea is reshaped à the corneal flap is laid back down à almost immediate recovery à clearer vision
The whole procedure only takes a few minutes per eye and is virtually painless.
What LASIK Helps Correct:
Possible Side Effects: For the first 24 hours after surgery, you may experience light sensitivity, tearing, or a mild stinging sensation. Dry eye may also be temporary, but can be decreased with the use of artificial tears.
Recovery: Most people are able to resume their normal activities the next day following LASIK.
