    What is LASIK?

    LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser.


    LASIK is the most advance form of laser vision correction that is currently available.

    LASIK, is it suitable for me?

    LASIK Eye Surgery is the procedure of choice and can be elected to be done for a person who is dependant on glasses or contact lens for a prolonged period. It corrects the refractory errors in patients who have:
    1-Myopia or Near-sightedness
    2-Hypermetropia or Far-sightedness
    3-Astigmatism
    Also,,

    You should be at least 18 years or older
    Your eyes must be healthy and your prescription stable
    You should be in good general health.
    If you're myopic, you should postpone LASIK until your refraction has stabilized

    How long will the procedure actually take?
    You will be at Berkeley Eye Center's Surgery Center approximately two hours. The time in the surgery suite with the doctor is 15 to 20 minutes. The actual laser treatment time is approximately one minute per eye.​


    Is the laser painful?
    The procedure itself is not painful since medication is administered to make you feel comfortable. Post operatively, most patients experience little or no discomfort. After the procedure, your eyes may feel scratchy, gritty, or watery. These are temporary symptoms and are not a problem for most patients.​


    What kind of vision can I expect the day after surgery?
    Many patients notice improved vision immediately after the procedure. Most patients are functional without their corrective lenses at the one day post operative exam. Patients continue to see a gradual increase in their visual acuity during the first five to seven days after the procedure.
