In a LASIK procedure, a laser is used to reshape your cornea — the clear, round dome at the front of your eye — to improve the way your eye focuses light rays onto your retina.

Despite the process being extremely accurate, it doesn’t take a long time. You are in the laser room for only 10 to 15 minutes. Following the procedure, you are escorted to the recovery room where you can relax until you’re ready to go home.

The laser is able to analyze nearly 800 points in a 7mm pupillary area of the cornea. Compare that to eyeglass tests that analyze 78 points of the whole cornea.
