What LASIK does

LASIK medical science uses a caller invisible laser (called an excimer laser) to accurate the appearance of the membrane. This is the frontmost grade-constructed of our eye, finished which featherlike rays go by on their way to the tissue layer. They exceed done the lens system bringing up the rear the cornea, and form a minuscule mental image on the retina, which is transmitted to the mentality by the optic fascicle.

When the cornea is not utterly shaped, the floaty rays swing at the fallacious angle. Then they don't direction on the retina, but in head-on of it or at the back it. This creates near- and far-sightedness severally.

And once the tissue layer has pocket-sized irregularities in its shape, the lighting rays come with to the tissue layer out of focus in sure areas, so that our mental imagery has opacity in various surroundings.

LASIK uses the excimer laser to aerify minute pieces of tissue layer tissue, so as to precise the membrane build and wall. Then the airy rays immersion caustically on the tissue layer and we see noticeably.

Corneal flap

Before directing the laser beam on to the tissue layer to reshape it, the eye physician cuts a lilliputian waver on the tissue layer exterior and bends it final to uncover inexplicit body part. The optical maser plant on that body part and the tremble is replaced, where on earth it heals itself in a few years.

Not each one is a hot candidate for LASIK

If your corneas are too ribbony or too flat, LASIK is not a obedient answer.

Corneas too thin

In LASIK, the tiny tremble is cut next to a appliance titled a microkeratome. If your corneas are too thin, the eye physician may not be able to cut a righteous waver.

· In edged it as light as he can, he may unknowingly approach it beside a dump in it, so that some of what should be folded-back dither is increasingly cut of the cornea and will restricted access the laser

· Alternatively, he may by nonachievement detach it birthday suit to some extent than collapsible it hindmost. Then it may not meliorate as well.

· Or he may cut it too miniscule in diam for the optical maser to have plenty state to practise on.

Corneas too flat

The objective of is to dislocate very small pieces of tissue layer body part to ameliorate reverie. But if the cornea is too flat, removing more body part will brand it even flatter, and this won't improve sight. So people beside unessential even corneas are not polite candidates for LASIK surgery.


LASEK (Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis) uses a contrary device to instigate the bantam quiver. It's titled a surgical instrument and has an even better scalpel.

· The eye physician uses the trepan to moderately formulate the flap

· Then he covers the eye near a moderate drug of abuse medication for a half-minute or so to change the flap's edges

· Finally, he uses a lilliputian hoe-like tool to raise the flap's edges and crimp it wager on out of the way
The LASEK requirement is then resembling old school LASIK, using the excimer optical device to remodel tissue layer tissue, and the flicker is wisely replaced.


The dither ordinarily heals in a day or two and you may consistency several eye frustration during this circumstance. Many patients impairment a "bandage" contact lense which holds the dither in locate while it heals, but likewise allows oxygen to go to the eye tissue.

After a period or so you'll have your new figment of the imagination. This is a longest time than after LASIK, once the grades are forthwith clear.

If you're not a campaigner for LASIK, you may do immensely symptomless so beside LASEK as an alternative. Your eye physician will be competent to describe why one ceremony would be recovered for you than the another.


In Epi-LASIK, the elfin dither is cut and excimer optical maser nearly new to change integrity heavy-handedness tissue layer tissue, as in LASIK and LASEK.

But in Epi-LASIK, a plastic, oscillating weapon is utilized to make the flap, to some extent than the microkeratome or the finer-bladed trepan.

And or else of victimization an intoxicant solution to loosen the flap's edges before lifting it back, a greatly dusty plastic scalpel is used, called an animal tissue extractor. Why?

Because in a few cases, the alcohol therapy can motive animal tissue cells to die. An animal tissue is a surface membrane, so in this context, it refers to the surface cells on the membrane. The eye must grow more animal tissue cells nigh on the flap's edges to integrate it near the chill out of the tissue layer shallow.

Epi-LASIK results

As beside LASEK, imaging transformation occurs more than tardily than it does after LASIK. For some, it's obvious after 3 or 4 days, and for others it's not for 3 or 4 months.

But beforehand Epi-LASIK, ethnic group next to scrubby corneas were not able to have optical maser vision improvement. Now they regularly can.

A feature eye md is key in achieving super grades from any optical device eye surgery. Choose your md carefully, asking wads of questions and considering not conscionable the relational fees, but what you'll get for those fees.
