Laser Vision Correction
Everyone is talking about LASIK. Here is a brief description of the procedure.
A flap is created with a laser on the outer layers of the cornea and then the flap is gently folded back. An Excimer Laser is used to reshape the cornea, much like a contact lens forms a new shape on the cornea, only the laser is permanent. The flap is then put back in place, acting like a natural bandage.
The “Wow!” effect of Lasik is the very rapid recovery of vision and minimal discomfort post-operatively. You hear from patients that they did not feel anything, and could see well the very first day. Most people have functional vision in 24 hours, although this is true in most cases, it must be noted that each person will heal at a different rate. Vision, although greatly improved immediately after surgery, continues to improve for some weeks, even months.
