The name "LASIK" is short for Laser In-situ Keratomileusis. LASIK is used to treat low to high amounts of nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness. LASIK combines the computer controlled precision of the Excimer Laser with the benefits of another type of refractive surgery called Lamellar Keratoplasty (a procedure where an instrument known as a microkeratome makes a small flap in the outer layer of the cornea).


Normal vision - to see clearly, light rays are focused on the retina by both the cornea and the lens of the eye. In a hyperopic eye, commonly referred to as "farsighted" (place cursor over image), light rays from objects are focused in back of the retina causing images - at a distance and close up - to be blurred.

A thin corneal flap is created using a special instrument called a microkeratome
The Excimer laser pulse, after being preprogrammed for the appropriate hyperopic correction, is applied to the corneal bed.
The "flap" is returned to its original position of a quick, natural recovery.
Following LASIK treatment for farsightedness, the curvature of your central cornea is steeper. Light rays from viewed objects are focused on the retina.

Result After LASIK Surgery For Hyperopia

Before LASIK treatment for farsightedness, light rays from viewed objects are focused behind the retina. After the LASIK treatment, the "steeper" cornea allows light rays to bend in such a way as to become focused on the retina.

Over 96% of patients treated with the LASIK procedure at the Sunetra Eye Centre are no longer required to wear their glasses or contacts. However, individual results cannot be guaranteed.
