How LASIK Works

How Lasik Works?

Dr. Hirsch first numbs the eye with an anesthetic eye drop so that you won’t feel any pain. He then applies a suction ring to hold the eye firmly but delicately to make sure the pressure of the eye is sustained. He then uses a device known as an intralase to create a thin corneal flap. Intralase is a blade free method of Lasik flap creation and is considered to be much safer than conventional lasik. Once the corneal flap is gently lifted up the excimer laser is then applied to the exposed interior surface of the cornea so the tissue can be reshaped. The excimer laser removes the tissue underneath the flap and then reshapes the cornea of the affected eye, correcting your vision. In no more than 60 seconds the high energy pulses from the excimer laser actually reshape the internal cornea. The flap is then repositioned over the treated eye, this flap serves as a natural bandage and eliminates any discomfort that could be associated with other types of refractive surgery. To assist in the healing process eye drops will be applied and you will be required to take eye drops on a regular basis in the post-operative period. Sense the bonding properties of the corneal tissue is so strong no stiches are needed to keep the flap secured. Once the surgery is completed you should be well on your way to seeing the world in a whole new way! So call Dr. Hirsch’s office today so he can show you how you really should view the world!
