First, a thin flap is created. Next, the laser is applied. Lastly, the corneal flap is replaced.

Treatment
LASIK is an abbreviation for laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis and is a procedure whereby the outer surface of your eye (the cornea) is delicately reshaped using a laser to improve your focusing ability.

LASIK is the most popular laser eye treatment method, routinely performed throughout the world. LASIK is carried out without the need for a general anaesthetic, as eye drops are all that’s required to prevent any pain during the treatment.

Your eye surgeon delicately creates a thin layer of corneal tissue on the front of the eye. This layer, the corneal flap, is then lifted to expose the middle section of the cornea. The laser treatment is then applied to remove a pre-calculated amount of corneal tissue and the flap is gently eased back into place. Treatment is usually performed on both eyes at the same visit, and you will be in the treatment room for about 20 minutes.
