Creating the flap – we create a flap with a highly precise femtosecond laser.
Changing the laser – we reposition you to the excimer laser.
Folding back the flap – we gently fold back the flap, exposing the inner corneal tissue that we need to treat.
Correcting the error – the excimer laser reshapes the corneal tissue correcting the refractive error. We treat one eye to view objects mainly at a distance, but a little up close, and we treat the other to view objects mainly up close, but a little at a distance. The brain puts the two images together and enables the individual to see distance and near without effort.
Repositioning the flap – the flap is returned to its original position, protecting the eye like a natural bandage.
