DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that LASIK eye surgery is performed with an excimer laser?
What is the Excimer LASER?
LASIK eye surgery involves the use of an excimer laser to permanently change the shape of the cornea, or the outer layer of the eye. The EXCIMER laser, which is a specific type of "cool" laser, generates its power from light in the ultraviolet range. This type of laser cannot be visualized by the human eye. Because the excimer laser does not generate any heat, there is no tissue damage as the result of the laser light. As the treatment with the laser proceeds, microscopic layers of tissue, approximately 1/10th the width of a human hair are removed. The laser is programmed to remove precisely the amount of tissue needed to achieve the desired result.
