Glossary of Lasik Surgery Medical Terms

Astigmatism
Astigmatism is blurry vision produced by football-shaped corneas, which are too steep in one place and too flat in another. Astigmatic corneas focus light in two different places in the eye, making both near and distance vision a problem.

Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA)
The best possible vision a person can achieve with corrective lenses measured in terms of Snellen lines on an eye chart.

Cornea
The transparent front segment of the eye that covers the iris, pupil and anterior chamber, providing most of the eye's optical power. This is the part of the eye reshaped by laser vision correction.

Diopter
A measurement of the degree to which light converges or diverges; also a measurement of lens refractive power.

LASIK

Laser-Assisted Intrastromal Keratomeleusis, or LASIK, is the most advanced refractive surgical technique. During the LASIK surgery procedure, an out layer of the cornea is lifted up to form a flap and the underlying corneal tissue is then reshaped by use of a laser. This flap is self-sealing and requires no stitches in order to heal. The entire procedure takes less than ten minutes per eye and many people are able to see results instantly. Advancements LASIK technology now offers the ability to correct for multiple conditions such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
