LASIK - Laser assisted in situ Keratomileusis, is a common surgical treatment for myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Before the surgery, several eye examinations are conducted to determine exact shape and thickness of cornea and pupil. Some evaluations of moisture level of eyes are also done to prevent dryness of eyes after operation.We have LASIK Eye Surgery price information in 8 cities.

The first step in this surgery is to administer a femtosecond laser to make a circular flap in the cornea. This makes way towards an integral part of cornea. Next, some microscopic tissues from this region are removed by using excimer laser. This laser is specialized to use cool ultraviolet rays for the process.
The removal of tiny tissues from cornea accurately reshapes it, so that, it can focus exact amount of light on the retina. This thereby, improves vision to a large extent. To cure farsightedness, the removal of tissues is done in a manner, so as to give a steeper shape to the cornea. While for nearsightedness, cornea is considerably flattened. Astigmatism is treated by smoothening an irregular cornea.
The flap that was created initially, is now positioned back to its original position covering the area from where tissues are removed. Lasers perform their work so accurately that no stitches are required to place the flap to its position; it falls into its place just naturally.
