LASIK eye surgery, also called, laser-assisted in-situ kerkatolmileusis, is a procedure which corrects vision problems and eliminates the need for glasses or contact lenses. It’s a type of eye surgery that changes the shape of the cornea using a laser. With LASIK eye surgery, the main goal is to “bend light rays to focus more precisely on the patient’s retina” and to produce clearer and sharper vision. In order to have LASIK eye surgery, the patient first needs to go to an eye doctor for a pre-surgical eye exam. However, the patient needs to meet the following criteria: be at least 18 years old, be in good health, should not have any eye infections or injury, should not be nursing or pregnant, should not suffer from dry eyes, and must not wear contact lenses for a certain period of time.

However, LASIK vision correction is not for everyone. There are definite risks as well as possible side effects involved. Some of the side effects are hazing, night glare and halos, loss of vision, dry eye, infections and corneal abrasions. LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering on the front of the eye, using an Excimer laser (“LASIK”). A knife, called a microkeratome, is used to cut a flap in the cornea.

A Slit-lamp is a specialized magnifying microscope in which a doctor could examine the cornea, iris, and retina. Its use is to look in the interior of the eye with the built-in laser and a camera (figure 7). Shirmers test determines whether or not there is enough tears to keep the eye moist. Another methods of detecting for corneal ulcer are Keratometry (measurement of the cornea) and scraping of the ulcer for analysis (Medlineplus). There are many different ways to treat corneal ulcer.
The absence of any of these factors led to the conclusion that the lesion was benign.

He created the technique of cutting small flaps of the cornea off of the eye in order to reshape it. In addition to this procedure he also did research into how to ensure that this procedure of reshaping the cornea would have long lasting effects on its patients. (Wikipedia) After Barraquer, Svyatoslav Fyodorov continued research by creating radial keratotomy, also known as RK. This procedure still deals with the idea of cutting the flaps of the cornea, however, Fyodorov uses a knife and cuts incisions like “the spokes of a wheel” on the eye, thus explaining why it’s called radial keratotomy. (Wikipedia RADIAL) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radial_keratotomy The introduction of lasers into surgery didn’t even happen until 1980 when an IBM research scientist discovered that a particular laser, an ultraviolet excimer laser to be exact, had the ability to make cuts into human tissue without damaging other areas around it.
As it cuts, blood vessels are sealed, and tissue is sterilized. The laser is particularly useful in regions of the body that are difficult to reach.
