Glossary of Lasik Surgery Technology Terms
Laser-Assisted Intrastromal Keratomeleusis, or LASIK, is the most advanced refractive surgical technique. During the LASIK surgery procedure, an out layer of the cornea is lifted up to form a flap and the underlying corneal tissue is then reshaped by use of a laser.
