This paragraph is about how Lasik works. According to Delaware eyes there are three steps for Lasik. First, A hinged flap is created with a microkeratome. Then the flap is lifted carefully up, exposing the underlying corneal surface. Second, Pulses of Excimer laser energy gently reshapes the surface of the cornea. Third, the corneal flap is replaced. The flap naturally seals to the cornea without stitches. But since it hurts, they put the eye to sleep. That means they numb the eye before they do the surgery.
