Virtual LASIK Eye Surgery
People who are tired of fumbling with reading glasses or struggling to read signs off in the distance might want to consider LASIK eye surgery. This outpatient refractive procedure uses lasers to correct vision problems by altering the structure of the cornea which may eliminate the need for glasses or contacts. During this interactive LASIK eye surgery, you will numb the patient’s eye with drops and clean the area. Using a speculum, you will open the eye and mark the cornea with water-soluble ink before attaching a suction ring to it. Next, you will use a specialized blade device to cut the corneal flap and peel it back so that the laser can remove the corneal tissue underneath. By doing this, you will be correcting its shape in less than a minute before putting the corneal flap back in place. When you are finished you will go over LASIK eye surgery recovery instructions. Go ahead and scrub in so we can get started!
