LASIK – Laser Assisted in-situ Keratomileusis

Laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis, better known as  LASIK, was initially developed in 1989 by Ioannis Pallikaris, a surgeon who practiced in Greece. As in the automated procedure lamellar keratoplasty, LASIK requires the creation of a flap in the cornea before surgical eye correction can take place. The Food and Drug Administration approved the first LASIK corrective eye surgery in 1999.

There are several reasons LASIK has become the most popular corneal refractive procedure. The laser used to reshape the cornea to correct refractive errors of the eye is precise and accurate. Visual recovery after surgery is quick. Also, creation of a corneal flap significantly reduces the amount of post-operative discomfort. Visual results are excellent.
