The term LASIK comes from “Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis” and refers to the procedure of laser eye surgery that is used to treat astigmatism, myopia, and hyperopia, improving vision and reducing the patient’s need to wear glasses contact or mount. The procedure is ambulatory and takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes for each eye.
LASIK surgery uses an excimer (ultraviolet) laser through which a thin layer of corneal tissue is extracted, to shape the cornea, making it thinner and improving the way the eye focuses light.
To treat myopia the LASIK procedure flattens a very steep cornea. In contrast, for farsightedness, LASIK achieves a steeper cornea. For astigmatism, the procedure shapes the cornea to make it smoother and more normal. Presbyopia (loss of ability to focus due to age) is the only ophthalmologic condition that cannot be corrected with LASIK.
