LASIK transforms vision by reshaping your cornea, allowing it to focus light more directly onto your retina. In order to access the stroma level of your cornea, where the re-shaping actually takes place, a flap is created in the epithelium (the outer layer of your cornea). This flap can be created with either a microkeratome or a femotosecond laser. Dr. Khanna will determine the technique best suited to your needs.
The LASIK flap comes with many benefits for patients, including:
No stitches are required to hold the flap in place after treatment; your eye will naturally keep it in place while it heals. This revolutionary technique is part of what makes LASIK one of the most successful and sought-after medical procedures in the world year after year.
