LASIK

LASIK is the most popular laser vision correction procedure in the world today. LASIK is a two stage procedure. The first step is creation of a flap of 90 – 130 micron thickness. The flap is then reflected and the exposed corneal stroma is called ”THE BED”. The second step is to modify the curvature of the cornea by laser shots – “ABLATION” on the bed according to the predetermined corneal profile made by computer suitable for the particular eye. The flap is the replaced on the bed to produce an un-interrupted surface . The flap sticks to the bed quickly in two minutes and there is no need of any stitch or bandage.The vision is good just after the procedure and gets better with time and in nearly all the cases becomes perfect in one day.
