LASIK Eye Surgery


LASIK Eye Surgery by Dr. Michael Furlong

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), the most common laser vision correction procedure performed today, can correct a wide range of conditions, including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Using a highly accurate, cold-beam excimer laser, LASIK surgeon, Dr. Michael Furlong, reshapes the cornea (the clear window on the front of the eye) to focus light rays directly on the retina.

During LASIK surgery, a thin corneal flap is created with a laser. The corneal flap is gently folded back and the excimer laser uses pulses of invisible ultraviolet light to gently reshape the internal tissue of the cornea. Each pulse of the laser removes only a very small amount of corneal tissue – about 1/500th of the thickness of a human hair. The laser is guided by the VARIO Topolyzer Map created specifically for each individual eye. The laser has several safety features programmed into the software and will not energize unless the reference points in the corneal surface and iris exactly match those in the patient’s surgical map.  Also, the surgeon has full control of the laser and can turn it off at any time.
