New York Lasik


LASIK (Laser-in-situ Keratomileusis) represents a major improvement in laser vision correction. It is also called "Flap and Zap" by some since the surgeon lifts a thin flap with a microkeratome and applies the energy beneath the flap. The thin outer flap of skin varies between 130 and 180 microns (1 micron is 1/1000 of a millimeter) and is comprised of the epithelium, Bowman's layer and some outer stroma. The diameter of the flap can be varied between 8.5 and 9.5 mm.

Lasik Hornell NYIn contrast to PRK, these specialized layers are moved out of the path of the laser beam and then put back in place at the end of the procedure. This eliminates the need for the superficial layers to regenerate after the treatment. The thin flap is attached to the eye by a small hinge of tissue that is left either nasally or beneath the upper lid. The original keratomes all produced a nasal hinge that worked well, but subsequent refinements have resulted in "Down-Up" LASIK. Advantages include greater comfort and a smoother surface; gravity and the normal blink reflex tend to smooth the flap rather than promote folds or displacement.
