More about LASIK at Cornerstone Eye Associates
LASIK is one of the best ways to correct refractive errors and provide independence from visual aids. Prior to the short, practically painless procedure, detailed information is recorded about the patient’s specific vision problems. This information is then used to craft the surgical plan.
To begin, a small flap is created in the cornea. The flap is gently lifted and an excimer laser is used to reshape the underlying tissue and give the cornea a normal curvature. After the cornea has been properly reshaped, the flap is restored to its original position on the cornea, where it heals itself.
The LASIK procedure takes 10 to 15 minutes per eye and is not painful. Patients can return home shortly after the surgery and many are pleased to find their vision has noticeably improved as soon as the next day.
