The LASIK procedure (Laser Assisted Surgical In-situ Keratomileusis) is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses in people who are nearsighted or farsighted, and who have astigmatism. In LASIK SURGERY, lasers are used to reshape the cornea. (SEE LASIK SURGERY)
The very latest LASIK procedure is called I-LASIK. In I-LASIK no blades are used. The INTRALASE LASER creates the superficial flap and a different laser performs the vision correction.
The average LASIK procedure: Takes less than 2 minutes • Has no significant discomfort • Gives excellent visual results
