What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is an outpatient refractive surgery procedure used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK allows people to perform everyday tasks without corrective lenses. A laser is used to reshape the cornea, improving the way the eye focuses light onto the retina. More than 90% of people who have LASIK achieve between 20/20 and 20/40 vision.

How the Surgery Works

  1. Map the imperfections – Using highly advanced technology, a detailed, 3D map of the cornea’s surface is created, allowing the doctor to create an individualized treatment plan.
  2. Create the Corneal Flap – For LASIK to work, the laser beams must reach the inner region of the cornea. Moore Eye Institute offers only the safest technology and utilizes the all-laser approach when creating the flap.
  3. Reshaping the cornea – Once the flap is folded back, a laser is used to correct corneal imperfections in seconds.
  4. Flap replacement – After the cornea has been reshaped, the flap immediately begins to re-bond with the surrounding tissue. Because of the natural bonding qualities of the corneal tissue, effective healing begins immediately without stitches.

Post-Surgical Treatment

After LASIK, the cornea usually heals within the first 24 to 48 hours, and patients will be provided antibiotic drops as well as written post-operative instructions. Although patients should not drive for 24 hours, most return to normal activities, including work and exercise, within 48 hours.
