What is the laser surgery?:

What is the laser surgery? Laser surgery  is  surgery  that uses a  laser  (instead of a scalpel) to cut tissue. ... Techniques used include LASIK, which is used to correct near and far-sightedness in vision, and photorefractive keratectomy, a procedure which permanently reshapes the cornea using an excimer  laser  to remove a small amount of tissue.

What happens when you have laser eye surgery?:

What happens when you have laser eye surgery? During LASIK eye surgery, an instrument called a microkeratome or femtosecondlaser is used to create a thin flap in the cornea. The cornea flap is then painlessly peeled back and the underlying corneal tissue is reshaped using another laser.

How do they perform Lasik eye surgery?:

How do they perform Lasik eye surgery? First, your eye surgeon uses either a mechanical surgical tool called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser to create a thin, circular "flap" in the cornea. ... The surgeon then folds back the hinged flap to access the underlying cornea (called the stroma) and removes some corneal tissue using an excimer laser.

What type of laser is used in laser eye surgery?:

What type of laser is used in laser eye surgery? Once the flap is created, the excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea, which corrects the refractive error. PRK is the second most common type of laser eye surgery. PRK starts with the removal of a portion of surface of the cornea or epithelial tissue.

Is there any pain with Lasik?:

Is there any pain with Lasik? In most cases, PRK and LASIK does not hurt during or immediately after the procedure. Before your LASIK eye surgery begins, numbing eye drops are used to alleviate any pain or discomfort to the eye during the procedure. ... LASIK does not hurt during the procedure, however you may feel some pressure on your eyes.

How long does it take for Lasik surgery?:

How long does it take for Lasik surgery? How long does it take to do LASIK? The actual procedure usually takes less than 10 minutes per eye. Depending on your prescription, and the amount of correction needed, the laser itself only takes 20-50 seconds to correct your vision.

What are the side effects of laser eye surgery?:

What are the side effects of laser eye surgery? As with any surgery, LASIK eye surgery carries risks, including: Undercorrections . Overcorrections. Vision returning to pre-surgery vision. Visual loss or changes. Astigmatism. Glare, halos and double vision. Dry eyes. Flap problems.

Is Lasik surgery permanent?:

Is Lasik surgery permanent? In most cases the improved vision LASIK surgery provides is permanent. But in a limited number of cases — usually due to changes that can occur in the lens inside the eye, with or without LASIK surgery — some near-sightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism can return over time, causing blurry vision.

What is the success rate of laser eye surgery?:

What is the success rate of laser eye surgery? LASIK has a remarkable success rate, with 96% of patients achieving 20/20 vision or better, according to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. LASIK eye surgery is a permanent procedure that corrects vision problems such as near-sightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
