How Is LASIK Performed?
During LASIK, a surgeon uses a laser to reshape the cornea, which is the clear covering over the iris and pupil. The procedure changes the refractive characteristics of the eye in the same way that glasses and contacts do—by enabling light entering the eye to be properly focused onto the retina. The procedure takes only about 10 to 15 minutes for each eye, but patients should plan on being in the doctor’s office for at least an hour on the day of surgery.
LASIK Is Safe
LASIK has a very low rate of complications. It’s also painless, but patients may feel a temporary burning or itching sensation immediately afterward. Your doctor will likely recommend that you use eye drops regularly for a while following surgery to reduce inflammation and ensure a smooth recovery.
