LASIK is an acronym meaning "Laser Assisted in-SItu Keratomileusis." The procedure uses a precision laser in order to cut a flap of tissue on your cornea. If you think of your eye as a camera, the cornea is analogous to the lens. The "film" consists of the retina at the rear of the inner eyeball. Images, in the form of light waves, enter the eye through the cornea and strike the retina. The retina then records the images and sends them on to the brain via the optic nerve. Over time, the eyeball may change shape for any number of reasons. When the shape of the camera is changed, the light images entering the eye cannot be focused against the retina properly. Icon your Denver LASIK eye surgery provider uses a procedure, which involves making precision cuts into the corneal tissue with a tightly focused laser beam. The purpose is to change the shape of the cornea, or lens, in order to correct your eye's ability to focus.
