LASIK Laser Eye Surgery Procedure

LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) or IK, for short, is the most frequently performed laser procedure in the world.

 

Your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon prepares your eye for laser treatment by creating a small flap on the surface of the cornea (front surface of the eye) by using blade-free IntraLase technology.

 

The laser is then applied to the underlying surface to reshape your cornea and correct for your prescription.

 

Your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon then places the flap back down and your eye begins to heal.

 

The key benefits of the LASIK procedure are a rapid recovery time, usually within 48 hours and little or no post operative discomfort.
