Hi i want to know when you have lasik eye surgery, during the sugery what if my eyeball moves is that ok, or do I have to keep it still.
Lasers have tracking: During the procedure you will be watching a fixation light. Most of the excimer lasers used in this country have tracking devises.

(every word in this sentence is important!) so reseting your focus does not treat any disease.. It just resets your focus, which may change, but likely will not if your vision is stable. Surgery (like everything in life) has risks. If you can accept the small risks for the vision benefits, then go for it! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
