OK, you have decided to have LASIK. Your dad had it 12 years ago for 1899/eye and now that LASIK center offers it for 999/eye. If it worked for your father it should work for you is what they say. But wait a minute… there was no facebook nor twitter than. Pentium 1 processors ruled the day and windows 2000 was ruling the day. We have moved on from pentium 1 to xeon and now windows 7 is here. The good news for your eyes is that LASIK has progressed too. First What is the full form of LASIK? LASER assisted intrastromal keratomilusis. LASER of course stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In simple words in LASIK a flap is fashioned and everted. The exposed cornea is than modified by the laser. Now that is what we are going to talk about- the design and fashioning the LASIK flap.
