LASIK eye surgery is the most common refractive surgical procedure worldwide and nearly one million procedures are performed annually in the United State. LASIK surgery consists of the creation of a corneal flap with either an Intralase (femtosecond laser) or a surgical blade (in medical terms, a “mechanical microkeratome”). The flap is the gently folded back and the excimer laser resurfaces the cornea to a new shape. LASIKhas been approved by the FDA to correct nearsightedness (Myopia), farsightedness (Hyperopia), astigmatism (either combined with nearsightedness or farsightedness), and Presbyopia
(where LASIK is performed on one eye to create monovision).
