LASIK improves vision by reshaping the eye’s focusing element – the cornea. During the LASIK treatment, your surgeon creates a flap in your cornea that allows the laser to reshape the underlying layers of your cornea.
The creation of the flap and reshaping of the cornea repairs imperfections in the curvature of your eye that leads to distorted and blurry vision.
Many patients opt for LASIK because of its quick recovery time. Most LASIK patients can see clearly within 24-hours after surgery.
