Understanding the Lasik Eye Surgery

By Ferzaad Moosa Subscribe to RSS | July 21st 2012 | Views:

LASIK or Lasik stands for Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis and is a kind of refractive laser eye surgery that is performed to rectify eye related issues such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

Lasik eye surgery doctors undertake additional qualifications to perform this procedure. In most cases they are trained ophthalmologists who have undergone additional certification in refractive surgeries.

Introduction To Lasik

In this medical procedure, the lasik eye surgery doctors use laser to reshape the cornea. Cornea is the clear, round dome in the front of the eye. Laser is used to improvise on the pattern in which the light rays are focused into the retina that is in the back of the eye. This improves the clearness of sharpness of the vision. There are other alternative methodologies for the same problem such as the Photo refractive keratectomy (PRK) but this procedure is the most preferred alternate. The most advantageous aspect of this procedure is that the pain is less compared to other procedures and the recovery span is much shorter.
