LASIK Surgery

Refractive Surgery includes any surgery that is done to reduce one’s dependency on glasses. LASIK surgery is the most common vision correction procedure all over the world.

LASIK –Laser In Situ Keratomilieusis surgery basically involves two steps- Creating a precise thickness flap on the cornea ( glass like covering of eye)  and then using excimer laser to alter its shape to give  clear vision without glasses. In bladeless LASIK, instead of a motorized blade, another laser called as Femtosecond Laser is used to create flap, thereby increasing safety, efficacy and predictability of the LASIK surgery.
