After examination and you are a likely candidate, your eye doctor would let you sit in a reclining chair where your eye will receive anesthetic drops to help ease any discomfort during the surgery. Then, your doctor will use an instrument to keep your eyes open throughout the surgery as this is required. A special blade called microkeratome is then used to cut a very thin and small flap in your eye so the laser could penetrate effectively in your cornea. A computer is used to precisely position the laser in place so it could start sending pulses of light to reshape your cornea. The cut flap is folded back in place immediately after enough tissue has been removed.
