Athin corneal flap is created and lifted with an attached hinge using a microkeratome. Correction of spectacle number is done by excimer laser on the stromal bed and the corneal flap is replaced back in position.
Femto Lasik/Bladeless Lasik
A Femtosecond laser is used to create the flap by forming a layer of bubbles under the outer layer of cornea. The flap is lifted and correction is done on the stromal bed using Exciser laser and flap is replaced back. It is more precise and safe.
