What is LASIK Laser Eye Surgery?
Lasik stands for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis and is the most commonly performed type of laser vision correction in the world. LASIK Laser Eye Surgery is proven to be safe and effective; it is rapidly becoming a first choice for correcting sight. Advanced Wavefront Lasik treatment is completely blade free unlike the traditional methods and, consequently, has a quick recovery time.
The laser eye surgery procedure is carried out using two extremely precise types of lasers. A micro-thin flap is created in the cornea using the highly specific Intralase laser, and an Excimer Laser is then used to reshape the cornea to correct the prescription. Advanced Wavefront Lasik is able to treat a wide variety of prescriptions – long sight, short sight and astigmatisms.
