All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



How long does the procedure take ?

Lasik takes me about 12 minutes to perform in both eyes. Usually your stay at the laser center that day will be about 2-3 hours. It is better to inquire with your doctor as this can vary from place to place.
