In brief: LASIK is laser surge

Lasik is one form of laser eye surgery where a protective flap is made in the cornea (with blade or laser).
This is followed by another laser being used to reshape the cornea. The protective flap is then put back in place. Lasers are used in many other forms of eye surgery to treat medical conditions (glaucoma, retina, cataract.....). Thanks.
