For more than twenty years, Emory cornea specialists have earned worldwide recognition for their expertise in general refractive surgical techniques that improve vision and reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts. Our specialists have researched every advance in refractive surgery techniques, including refractive keratotomy (RK), photo refractive keratotomy (PRK), LASIK, LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis) and phakic intra-ocular lenses (IOLs).

Laser in Situ Keratomileusis ("LASIK") is a laser procedure that can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK involves creating a protective flap from the outside layer of the cornea and sculpting the middle layer to correct refractive error and improve vision. The outside flap is then repositioned over the sculpted area, much as a band-aid. The FDA's ophthalmic devices advisory panel has recommended FDA approval for the LASIK procedure using a surgical system developed by Emory cornea surgeons.
