Evaluation - we will get some custom wavescanse of your eyes. Dr Kotecha will thoroughly evaluate your eyes and review your test results with you.
you will get some medication to relax you and some numbing medication around the eyes. A laser is used to create a flap on the cornea. You may feel some pressure on your eyes at this time, however this procedure usually takes less than 30 seconds.
