1 00:00:13.400 --> 00:00:18.557 LASIK is actually just an acronym for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis. 2 00:00:18.714 --> 00:00:20.786 It's so much easier to say LASIK. 3 00:00:20.943 --> 00:00:27.957 Laser eye surgery involves using a laser to remove certain elements of the tissue 4 00:00:27.986 --> 00:00:32.529 of the front part of the eye, the cornea, and essentially reshaping the cornea 5 00:00:32.530 --> 00:00:36.086 to bend light to properly focus on the back section of the eye. 6 00:00:36.271 --> 00:00:39.043 In LASIK, we are essentially creating a flap 7 00:00:39.287 --> 00:00:42.271 and removing this flap of tissue, applying the laser, 8 00:00:42.357 --> 00:00:45.686 and we use the patient's own tissue then to come back down and heal. 9 00:00:45.729 --> 00:00:48.243 Typically laser will heal very quickly. 10 00:00:48.271 --> 00:00:52.428 It's really amazing, actually, because you can expect to see very close 11 00:00:52.429 --> 00:00:56.840 to perfect vision or 20/20 eyesight the very next day after laser eye surgery.
