How well does laser eye surgery work?

In brief: There are multiple

different lasers and dozens of procedures that are performed using these lasers.
How it works really depends on which procedure you are interested in knowing about. LASIK and PRK change the shape of your cornea to allow the eye to focus the light better. Sometimes the cornea is too strong or too weak, and the laser helps us fix that. Hope that helps.
