-How it Works-

This flash shows a basic laser eye surgery procedure. First, the speculum holds the eyelids open. Then, shows the suction ring of the microkeratome being placed on top of the eye, encircling the cornea. The the microkeratime blade slides over the cornea, making a thin flap in the cornea. The flap is then lifted back so a laser beam can then reshape the cornea. The flap is then folded back, completing the surgery.


It started when Dr. Fyodorov, of Russia, was treating a boy whose glasses had broken. Following recovery, this patient's refraction was significantly less myopic than prior to the injury. He then worked out a formula which made this procedure more predictable than ever been before. In 1978, American ophthalmologists became interested in these findings.

Since introduced, surgery has been performed on over 2 million patients in the United States alone.
