Learn About Lasik Surgery For Farsighted People!

Lasik is the pre­ferred pro­ce­dure for cor­rect­ing far­sight­ed­ness. It changes the shape of the eye.

In lasik, a thin flap is made on the cornea using a blade or laser. The flap is lift­ed, and a laser is applied to the cen­tral corneal tis­sue. The laser makes con­tact with the cornea in a cir­cu­lar pat­tern around the cen­tral opti­cal zone. This changes the pro­file of the cornea, mak­ing it steep­er. The laser removes tis­sue from the cornea very pre­cise­ly with­out dam­ag­ing near­by tis­sues. The flap is then replaced, allow­ing for rapid heal­ing.
