Yaldo Eye Center – Lasik Experts

The term “Lasik’ applies to a variety of laser eye surgery options, such as conventional, all laser Lasik, PresbyLasik, custom Lasik or Lasek as well as monovision Lasik. Candidates for these procedures undergo careful screening to ensure that these treatment options are appropriate for their condition.

 

What Is LASIK?

LASIK is refractive eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism—all of which are often caused by a focusing errors. Lasik corrects these issues by changing the shape of the cornea. As an example, a cornea may be too steep and cause nearsightedness. If the cornea is too flat causes farsightedness.

 

To reshape the cornea, a LASIK surgeon creates a protective flap of tissue in the outer layer of cornea and uses a laser to remove microscopic cells in the layer beneath. After just a few minutes, the surgeon puts the flap back in place, which acts like a bandage as the patient’s eyes heal. In the months following LASIK eye surgery, the patient sees with improved vision.
