How does LASEK work?

Laser Eye Surgery

Romil Patel explains how LASEK works

LASEK essentially treats the very front surface of the eye. So we put in some drops to make sure that there’s no pain. We remove the very superficial surface of the eye. The laser is then applied, and then we put a contact band lens on top of that laser.

And essentially you will go home on the same day with some antibiotics and steroid drops, and we’ll be seeing you one day later.

If you’re a busy person, you’ll be shocked to find out how much time and money you waste on glasses & contacts. Use our time savings calculator now to discover how much you could save if you stopped renting your vision.
