Types of Laser Eye Surgery
LASIK is the most common form of laser eye surgery. During the surgery, an ophthalmologist will cut a small flap on the surface of the cornea, then use a computer-programmed laser to reshape the underlayer of the cornea. After the reshaping is complete, the cornea flap will be replaced to heal.
While PRK surgery is similar to LASIK, they differ in how they adjust the cornea. During PRK, an ophthalmologist will remove the top layer of the cornea with a surgical blade. Once removed, a computer-programmed laser will remove a specific amount of corneal tissue.
