In brief: Laser eye treatment

There are several different types of lasers to treat eye conditions.
Those lasers which are for lasik or cataract surgery require the patient to lie down, while others which treat glaucoma, retinal diseases, or secondary cataracts are performed while the patient sits in an exam chair.
