LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis)
LASIK surgery has a history of more than 20 years, and it is also a popular treatment for correct vision. The concept of Lasik surgery is to remodel the arc of corneal, in order to improve the ability of light refraction, thereby to correct vision and reduce patients’ dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
What is LASIK?
LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is an excimer laser treatment in situ keratomileusis. Using laser technology to polish the cornea, curvature of the corneal would be changed to achieve the effect of vision correction. During the process, the surgeon will first make a corneal flap. After that, the surgeon will open the corneal flap and reshape the curvature of the cornea, and then cover back the corneal flap to correct vision.
