Abstract

The applications of laser-assisted in situ keratomileuis - LASIK for reducing refractive error in the eye is discussed. In this process a device called microkeratome is used to shave a thin, hinged flap in the cornea. Pulses from an excimer laser operating at a wavelength of 193 nm are then delivered to this tissue to modify its shape.
