How LASIK works

Laser Vision correction [The VISX laser in our laser suite] is performed within minutes but it is the fruit of several years of intensive research and clinical trials culminating in its approval by the FDA in 1995. Laser technology evolves quickly. The latest improvement has been the possibility to expand the treatment ablation zone to minimize night aberrations in people with large pupils. This is now available with the state of the art FDA-Approved VISX S4 Laser and Wavescan. This laser uses sub-micron accuracy to reshape the cornea allowing the focus of light to fall on the retina.

The amount of cornea sculpted during LASIK is actually less than the width of a human hair.
