What is LASIK?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a type of the vision correction procedures. The operation is performed to improve the common eye problems (myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, astigmatism).

The procedure lasts 10 minutes per eye. A patient may return home in a few minutes after the LASIK operation. The vision is stabilized completely from a few days to several weeks.

100% of the patients stop wearing glasses and contact lenses after the LASIK surgery.

LASIK is a combination of microsurgical and excimer laser technologies. During the LASIK correction procedure, the eye doctors use a microkeratome (microsurgical device). The specialists create a flap of corneal tissue and bend it with the microkeratome.

Then the ophthalmologists carry out the laser correction on the inner layers of the cornea. During the operation a new shape of the cornea is created. It begins to refract light rays differently, which focus on the retina and the image becomes clear.
