What is Laser Vision Correction?
Laser vision correction treatments are generally known as either LASIK (when the procedure requires creating a thin flap on the cornea) or PRK (a surface readjustment treatment not requiring a flap). Both procedures are performed with anaesthetic eye drops to prevent pain. The treatments are usually carried out on both eyes at the same visit, and you will only be in the treatment room for around 20 minutes. The laser itself is applied for just a few minutes.
LASIK was invented 20 years ago, and today there are dozens of ways it can be carried out. Modern techniques have improved a lot and barely resemble the old mechanical, steel blade procedures. The two main forms of laser vision correction are LASIK and PRK.

PRK – ASA (Advanced Surface Ablation)
PRK has gone through a similar evolution and has been replaced by ASA (Advanced Surface Ablation), which again, bears little resemblance to PRK procedures of previous years.
