LASIK Eye Surgery Laser Technology: FDA Approved Lasers
The LASIK Vision Institute® provides you with the latest FDA clinically approved laser and diagnostic technology in the industry.
How do excimer lasers work?
An excimer laser produces ultraviolet light that is absorbed by tissue, so rather than burning or cutting, the energy from the laser disrupts the molecular bonds of the surface tissue in a precisely controlled manner through ablation. These lasers can remove exceptionally fine layers of surface material with almost no change to the remainder of the tissue which is left intact. Precise and efficient laser technology is utilized to reshape the layers of the cornea to treat your refractive error.
