LASIK is an acronym that stands for Laser Assisted in-situ Keratomileusis. The LASIK procedure combines the precision of the excimer Laser, the femtosecond laser, the eyes own natural healing power, and the skill of a qualified surgeon.
In the first step of LASIK eye surgery a femtosecond laser is used to make a flap in the cornea. This flap is lifted and an excimer laser treatment is performed on the inner part of the cornea
The excimer laser is then used to reshape the inner layers of the cornea with ultraviolet light and high-energy pulses. By adjusting the pattern of the laser beam, high levels of near-sightedness, and moderate amounts of farsightedness and astigmatism are able to be treated.
