What Is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery refers to a group of procedures that help correct refractive errors in your vision. There are two main types of laser eye surgery:


During Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery, the surgeon will cut a flap in your cornea and then fold it back. Your cornea will be reshaped using a precision laser. The flap will be lowered after surgery, and the cornea will repair itself as you heal.

LASIK is the most popular form of laser eye surgery in North America, with a satisfaction rate of over 90%.

An alternative to LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) also changes the shape of the cornea. During PRK the top layer of the cornea is completely removed and a laser re-shapes the remaining layers.

Are You A Candidate For Laser Eye Surgery?

A comprehensive eye exam is needed in order to determine whether you are a good candidate for one or both types of laser eye surgery.

Refractive instability, or a prescription that constantly changes, may rule out both types of laser eye surgery as an option, as might pregnancy or diabetes. Some eye diseases may also make you ineligible.

If your corneas are very thin, LASIK may not be the right option for you. PRK has a longer recovery time, so if you need to get back to work or school right away, LASIK may be the surgery to go with.

It may all sound overwhelming, but don’t worry. McCulley Optix Gallery is here to help.

Will I Still Need Glasses After Laser Eye Surgery?

Managing your expectations is an important part of your laser eye surgery consultation. While 20/20 vision is possible after surgery, many people find they still need glasses to achieve the vision they want.

Laser eye surgery can help reduce the strength of your prescription and potentially lower your reliance on corrective lenses.
