Traditional LASIK

During the first step, our surgeon creates a flap of corneal tissue and folds it back to prepare the eye for the second step, in which an excimer laser is used on the inner cornea to correct vision. This two-step process allows for rapid visual recovery with little or no patient discomfort.

During a traditional LASIK procedure, the doctor creates the corneal flap with a hand-held blade called a microkeratome. While this method has worked well over the years, the microkeratome is the source of the majority of LASIK complications.
