Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)Excimer
Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomilieusis (LASIK) is one of the ways of applying an excimer treatment.
LASIK uses the accuracy and precision of the Excimer laser
to alter the shape of the cornea in an attempt to change the
way the light is focused or refracted by the eye, thereby
reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK, the first step of the procedure requires shaping a thin flap via
a Femto Laser which is then lifted, and the middle portion of the
cornea (stroma) is then reshaped with the excimer laser.
The flap is then repositioned over the excimer treated area.
The chief benefit of Lasik vs TransPRK is a more rapid return of vision.
The approximate minimal age range for Laser Vision Correction
is 18-21. That’s because we require a "stable"
prescription. Thus the ideal LASIK candidate has a stable
refraction since one year, healthy corneas and a strong motivation
to eliminate or reduce his dependence from glasses or contact
