The eye works in a way very similar to a camera. Both the cornea and the lens help focus the image onto the retina (like the lens of a camera). The image must be clearly focused on the retina which is like the film of the camera. In nearsighted people, the cornea is too steep. In farsighted people, the cornea is too flat. Astigmatism is simply an irregular shape to the cornea. All of these conditions are helped by LASIK surgery.
PRK, LASEK and other surface procedures require that the epithelium (surface layer of skin on the cornea) be removed prior to the laser treatment. Many practices who do not have laser to create the LASIK flap prefer these procedures over using the microkeratome. These surface procedures may be preferable in a small percentage of patients with thin corneas or other corneal irregularities. In most cases, we recommend LASIK.
