The Excimer Laser gently vapourises tissue with microscopic precision to alter the corneal curvature, thereby correcting the refractive error of the eye.

In myopic (short-sightedness) correction, the Excimer Laser flattens the cornea, while in hyperopic (long-sightedness) correction, it steepens the cornea.  Astigmatism is corrected by reshaping the cornea to confer a regular curvature.

To compensate for involuntary movements of the eye during treatment, a high-speed advanced eye tracking system ensures precise delivery of the Excimer Laser pulses to the intended spots on the cornea to achieve accurate results.
