What is a LASIK surgery?
The surgery is done under local anesthesia. Surgeon uses a special device called femtosecond laser in order to cut a flap of the patient’s cornea.

At this point your surgeon will request you to focus your eyes on a target in order to stabilize them.

This process is performed to each eye separately and takes around 5 minutes for each. The surgeon reshapes the cornea according to your vision problem (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism).
