LASIK will change your life
LASIK is an acronym for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. It is the procedure wherein the Excimer laser treatment to correct error of refraction is applied on the bed of the cornea under a hinged corneal flap.
LASIK has been proven to be effective in treating a wide range of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
It is an outpatient procedure that takes 5-7 minutes per eye but the actual laser exposure lasts less than a minute.
Because the flap preserves the superficial layer of the cornea, visual recovery and healing are dramatically rapid. Patients regain functional vision in 4 to 12 hours.
With LASIK, there is accelerated visual recovery, enhanced quality of post-operative vision, early refractive stability, and minimal post-operative discomfort.
