Description

Animation showing the procedure for a type of laser eye surgery called LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis). This procedure reshapes the cornea of the eye using a laser. The cornea is the front part of the eye, and is responsible for the majority of the focussing power of the eye. Reshaping it can correct focussing disorders such as myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness) and astigmatism. In LASIK, a flap of the cornea is cut and peeled back, and the deeper layers are burnt to shape by the laser (blue). The flap is then replaced.
