Laser assisted in situkeratomileusis
(LASIK) has become one of the most commonly performed
surgical procedures in the United States. This type of Laser
Vision Correction has become popular due to its high level
of effectiveness and excellent safety record. Nevertheless,
LASIK is a surgical procedure
and needs to be viewed as such. No amount of promotion or
marketing can discount this fact.
At NEW YORK LASER EYE,
we conform to the highest standards for performing refractive
surgery or LASIK.
LASIK uses a microsurgical instrument (microkeratome)
and a laser (excimer laser) to permanently reshape the cornea
(the clear covering of the eye). One way to think of it is
the laser etches your contact lens or glasses prescription
right into your cornea, painlessly. The procedure is done
in an outpatient laser center and typically takes about 15
minutes for both eyes.
