Understanding Laser Eye Surgery

LASIK

 

 

 

LASIK (Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis) is essentially a two-step procedure. The first step is the creation of a thin protective flap on the cornea, and the second step involves the actual correction of one’s vision. Though many LASIK surgeons still use surgical blades for the first step, Dr. Kieval exclusively uses a bladeless technique with the IntraLase®

 

laser, in which microscopic pulses of light create the corneal flap. With its precision accuracy, IntraLase® technology has led to better visual outcomes with higher percentages of patients achieving perfect vision. More importantly, IntraLase® has greatly reduced and nearly eliminated complications during the procedure. The process takes approximately 20 seconds from start to finish.

Once the protective flap is folded back, the next step of LASIK - the reshaping of your cornea - can be performed. A second ultra-precision laser, the VISX STAR S4™ with ActiveTrak™, is then used to gently reshape the cornea. This process takes anywhere between 10 to 60 seconds, depending on your prescription.

When your LASIK treatment is over, the flap is securely repositioned into place, where it bonds with your eye without the need for stitches. The focus of light will now have been shifted to allow for perfect vision without the use of glasses or contact lenses.
