LASIK Eye Surgery Procedure

During LASIK eye surgery, the eye is numbed with a drop and a ring is placed on the eye. After that, a flap is made on the outer section of the cornea. Then the laser is applied to the eye. Once the laser is done, the flap is placed back into its place.

The whole LASIK procedure takes around 30 minutes to complete.

Numbing drops and sedation

Your ophthalmologist numbs the eyes by putting a couple of numbing drops. You may also given a sedation to help you relax during the procedure.

A suction ring is placed on your cornea to keep the eye in the proper position and prevent blinking.

Your ophthalmologist creates a small flap in the outer cornea. This allows the surgeon to reach the part of the cornea that has irregularities.

In this stage, you are asked to focus on the light that comes from the laser tool. The laser corrects the irregularities in the inner layer of the cornea that cause vision problems.

Once the laser is done, the surgeon flips the flap back into its place and ends the operation.

PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)

PRK is a type of laser surgery performed to treat refractive irregularities such as myopia, hypermetropia, and astigmatism. In PRK, no flap is created to use the laser to correct the irregularities in the cornea. The laser is used directly on the cornea. 

The flap comes with a dislocation risk from physical activity. PRK is preferred for patients who have dry eyes and an intense physical lifestyle to avoid dislocation risk.

SMILE (Small incision Lenticule Extraction)

SMILE eye surgery is the latest laser eye surgery technique. In this procedure, a flap is created in the cornea. Then, the flap in the problematic inner section of the cornea is completely removed. Smile can be a preferred choice for people with dry eyes  since it makes eyes less prone to dry eyes.
