A type of refractive surgery using a laser to correct Myopia, Hyperopia, and Astigmatism can be termed as LASIK or more commonly as Laser Eye Surgery. The correction basically aims at reconfiguring cornea, to rebuild visual acuity by sharpening the retinal focus within the eye. The defect incepts when there is an error in refraction of light. 
It can be due to some anomalies in the shape of eyeball or cornea. Short for laser in-situ keratomilusis, the surgery is employed as a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses. In recent years, tremendous advancement have been made in this field.

A narrow, round shaped flap is created by some surgical tool. The cornea tissue beneath, visible after folding the flap, is removed at microscopic amounts by using an ultraviolet light beam coming off the highly specialised laser system. Cornea is either flattened or steepened according to the defect experienced by the patient. After this, the flap is carefully laid back to its position, which adheres gradually and healed.

Adequate measures are taken to keep your eyes wide open like applying numbing drops to get the eyes in a relaxing posture. Also blinking of eyes is restricted by making use of a small device which holds eyelids tight. Further the excimer laser uses an eye tracking system which corrects the position of your eye for any delicate involuntary movements.
