Lasik Laser Surgery Benefits –

Lasik surgery is performed to cure the farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism.  In Lasik surgeries, the surgeon removes the cornea flap, to access the areas under the cornea. To cure the problem, the area under the cornea has to be reshaped before replacing the flap on the treated area. The laser is used to reshape the area under the cornea. The cornea flap is cut with the help of micro blades. But in the Lasik laser surgery, laser is used to cut the cornea flap also.The only difference between laser Lasik surgery and non laser Lasik surgery is that in laser Lasik surgery,the s laser is used twice, first, to create cornea flap and then for reshaping the exposed area under cornea for treatment.

The surgery takes place after numbing the eye with drops. The eye holder is placed on the eye to keep them open during the surgery. The patient is made to look at the pinpoint light, called target light, while the laser is used to reshape the corneal tissue. After this the cornea flap is placed back and it sticks with the underlying issues of cornea within few minutes.  The stitches are not needed. For nearsightedness, the cornea is flattened and for farsightedness, the steeper cornea is created.
