With its popularity increasing, LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis) surgery has aided millions around the world with their eyesight and saying goodbye to contact lenses and glasses. People with eye problems favor this surgery for its minimal pain and ability to restore vision the following day.
However, before you entrust your eyes to LASIK surgery, here are five things that you should be aware of.
1. How does LASIK work?
This surgical operation helps improve people suffering either from near or farsightedness. During operation, the eye surgeon will use a surgical instrument called microkeratome to peel off a circular “flap” in the cornea. With access to the cornea, the surgeon will then remove the necessary corneal tissue using a specialized excimer laser and adjust the cornea.
