The LASIK Procedure California

The LASIK procedure involves reshaping the cornea of the eye to correct refractive errors. Refractive errors include nearsightedness or farsightedness. The lasik, or Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, uses an instrument known as a microkeratome makes a protective flap of the cornea, which is gently folded back. Then, you will be asked to look at a focusing light. At this point the laser tracks your eye movement while the small spot laser beam precisely reshapes the cornea in a matter of seconds. At the end, the protective flap is folded back into place where it bonds securely without stitches.
