What is LASIK?LASIK is a type of refractive eye surgery. Its purpose is to facilitate the proper refraction of light off the retina at the back of the eye. The way the LASIK procedure achieves this goal is by reshaping the cornea. The procedure is performed in our outpatient clinic, taking only about fifteen minutes to complete. In many cases, a significant improvement in vision is noticed within just one day.
How LASIK worksThe LASIK procedure is performed through a small fold made in the surface tissue of the cornea. This uppermost layer is pulled back, allowing the surgeon to access underlying tissue. Using a precision excimer laser that emits UV light, Dr. Salib reforms the cornea to an optimal shape for the refraction of light. Reshaping may involve steepening the slope of the cornea to correct farsightedness or flattening is surface to correct nearsightedness. Astigmatism can also be treated with LASIK, during which the corneas shape will be modified according to its existing shape and the optimal shape for clear vision.
After reshaping has been completed, the fold of corneal tissue is replaced. No stitches are necessary. The eye will heal within days. Due to the use of local anesthetic, the LASIK procedure is quite comfortable. Post-procedure discomfort is also minimal, feeling more like grittiness than actual pain.
