Once your eye has been painlessly anesthetized, a comfortable device to prevent blinking will be situated between your eyelids.

Using a microkeratome, our doctors will create a protective flap in your cornea. In less than a minute, while you are focused on a "target' light,  the laser painlessly reshapes your cornea.

Once the protective flap is properly repositioned, your incision will then securely and quickly bond stitch-free.
