LASIK is a type of refractive surgery for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. LASIK surgery is performed by ophthalmologists using a laser and is a viable alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses for many patients.
There are several necessary preparations in the preoperative period. The operation itself involves creating a thin flap on the eye, folding it to enable remodeling of the tissue beneath with a laser. The flap is repositioned and the eye is left to heal in the postoperative period.
