How LASIK Works

Gerstein Eye Institute in Chicago

Have you heard of LASIK eye surgery? This procedure becomes more popular every year, allowing patients with a variety of vision problems to enjoy clearer and brighter vision without the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses!

Watch this video for a brief overview of how the LASIK eye surgical procedure works. The eye surgeon starts by cutting a flap in the cornea. This allows access to the eye’s interior so the laser can reshape the cornea to result in clearer vision. The laser works quickly, allowing most patients to walk in and out of the eye care center in 15 to 30 minutes!
