LASIK or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of refractive laser eye surgery performed by ophthalmologists for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
LASIK surgery is an extremely precise procedure that requires a highly skilled LASIK surgeon and advanced technology. Visiomed Eye and Laser Clinic provides its patients the opportunity to receive the most advanced LASIK procedure found in the world. Located in Johannesburg South Africa, Resident Surgeons performs LASIK procedures not only to the residents of the Johannesburg, but also to patients from all over the world.

Precision Laser Surgery
|Step 1You will be placed onto a comfortable bed from where your laser surgery will be done. Anaesthetic drops will be instilled to numb your eye. A special ring will be placed into your eye to keep your eyelids apart.|
|Step 2Your surgeon will create a corneal flap on the surface of your cornea.|
|Step 3The ‘hinged’ corneal flap is carefully pulled back and a small area of your cornea is exposed.|
|Step 4The Excimer laser beam is applied to reshape the exposed corneal area, removing certain parts of the tissue with high precision. This corrects your refractive error.|
|Step 5The corneal flap is then pushed back into place. The flap forms a natural ‘bandage’ and enhances the healing process after surgery.|
