In brief: See Below

Laser's are used in many different ways in ophthalmology.
Lasik is done by using a laser to reshape the cornea. Other lasers are used on the retina, lens capsule, iris, trabecular meshwork and ciliary body for different diseases. These lasers are all different and vary in function depending on the use.
