The LASIK Procedure
There are risks associated with LASIK, just as there are with every surgical procedure. However, LASIK has an exceptional safety record, and every year hundreds of thousands of Americans undergo the procedure without experiencing any problems. To further reduce these risks, we recommend you review our LASIK checklist.
The LASIK procedure has been honed and improved over the years, and is really quite simple. The procedure goes like this:
- We apply local anesthetic using eye drops.
- Our doctors will then make a small incision in your cornea using a precise scalpel called a microkeratome. We then open a small flap in the cornea.
- We will then use a precise surgical laser to re-shape your cornea, eliminating the imperfections that prevent light from being properly focused onto the retina
- We then close the corneal flap
And that’s it. The procedure usually takes around 10 minutes per eye to complete, and while your vision will likely be blurry for a day or so after the procedure you can expect rapid and immediate improvement.
