Start at the start
Laser Eye Surgery is a way of permanently correcting your vision. The procedure works by using a special type of laser to gently reshape the surface of the eye to correct vision problems such as, nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

What the procedure involves
There are two types of laser eye procedures called LASIK and LASEK/PRK. The key difference between these procedures involves the method of preparing the cornea. LASEK, also referred to as PRK, was the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction and is the predecessor to the popular LASIK procedure.

LASIK laser eye surgery treatment involves creating a very thin circular ‘flap’ in this outer layer of the cornea, using a laser surgical tool (femtosecond laser). In LASEK surgery, instead of using a laser, the surgeon simply loosens the top layer of cells of the cornea using a special solution.
