Lasik is a highly effective and advanced method to correct vision problems such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Using only a laser beam, LASIK aims to permanently improve vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. The procedure has been proven to be effective and safe, reducing dependency on glasses and improving quality of life.
During LASIK, the doctor creates a flap which is partial thickness of your cornea, then uses an excimer laser to the underlying surface to reshape your cornea and correct the error of refraction. The flap is safely created by a blade.
No, there are many types of refractive eye laser procedures used to improve vision, LASIK being one of them. The decision of which to make is taken by the eye surgeon according to the preoperative assessment done at the clinic that shows your corneal parameters.
Femto LASIK: same procedure as Lasik but the corneal flap is created by Femto laser beam.
PRK: is a non-flap Lasik procedure, where the outer layer of the cornea called epithelium is removed. Then excimer laser is applied to the corneal surface to correct the error of refraction. The outer corneal layer is removed with alcohol or a blade.
