LASIK Procedure

LASIK surgery involves reshaping the cornea to redirect the movement of light in the eye. When the cornea functions properly, it refracts light to a specific location on the back of the eye. In the case of astigmatism, hyperopia, or myopia, the light bends and doesn’t reach the correct part of the eye. This light-bending process creates blurry vision and lowers visual acuity.


LASIK reshapes the cornea to restore clear vision. Dr. Arora uses a femtosecond laser to create a corneal flap and reshape damaged tissue. The procedure typically takes less than 10 minutes per eye, so you’ll be in and out in no time.

LASIK Recovery

Most LASIK patients achieve near or total 20/20 vision within 24 hours of the procedure. You will experience blurry vision and mild discomfort for four to six hours after surgery. Because of this, we ask that you coordinate a family member or friend to drive you home from our office.

LASIK Surgery Types & Technology

We offer two types of LASIK surgery: conventional LASIK and IntraLASIK. Here are the main differences between the two.

Conventional LASIK

Dr. Arora uses a small blade to pull back the corneal flap to gain better access to the cornea. Upon moving the flap, he uses a femtosecond laser to reshape the cornea.


Rather than using a small blade to create the corneal flap, Dr. Arora uses a femtosecond laser to achieve greater surgical precision. This LASIK option can be more effective for patients with glaucoma.

What Does LASIK Surgery Treat?

LASIK surgery is designed for patients who suffer from blurry vision due to astigmatism, hyperopia, or myopia.


Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is curved or shaped unevenly, resulting in visual disturbances and loss of visual focus.


Hyperopia—also called farsightedness—occurs when light focuses behind the retina instead of on it, causing your vision to blur. Two common causes of hyperopia include an eyeball being shorter than average and the cornea being too flat, which causes visual distortions.


Myopia—also known as nearsightedness—occurs when light rays focus in front of the retina, causing your distance vision to become blurry. This condition is caused by either one eye being slightly longer than normal or a cornea that is overly curved.
