How does LASIK Work

Are you seeking a LASIK doctor in Bel Air, Maryland? If you are, you have come to the right place! LASIK is an acronym for Laser in-situ Keratomileusis and is one of the most commonly performed types of laser eye surgery. This procedure is generally safe, effective, and has very few side effects. LASIK eye surgery has helped millions of people see clearly without dependence on glasses or contact lenses. It has made those with active lifestyles happy again. For contact lens wearers, the hassles associated with contacts can be a thing of the past! LASIK is a quick and relatively painless vision correction procedure with an excellent track record of success. Proper pre-operative evaluations are critical to the success of this procedure for you.

How LASIK Surgery Works

During LASIK the surgeon first applies anesthetic eye drops to numb the eye for surgery. Next a suction ring is applied that is designed to hold the eye steady and also confirms the pressure of the eye. The LASIK surgeon then creates a thin corneal flap using a device called a microkeratome. The corneal flap is lifted up, and the excimer laser is applied to the exposed interior surface of the cornea to reshape the tissue. The computer-controlled excimer laser removes the tissue under the flap and reshapes the cornea of the affected eye. In less than 60 seconds, high-energy pulses from the excimer laser actually reshape the internal cornea. The flap is then re-positioned over the treated area. The corneal flap serves as a natural bandage, which eliminates the discomfort associated with other types of refractive surgery, and expedites the healing process. Because of the extraordinary bonding properties of the corneal tissue, stitches are not needed to keep the flap in place post operatively. Eye drops will be applied to assist with the healing process. You will be required to take eye drops on a regular basis within the post-operative period.
