What Is the Latest LASIK Technology?

Modern LASIK uses a laser, but not like the ones you’ve seen in science fiction movies. The laser used in vision correction procedures emits pulses that are femtoseconds long, which is one <em>quadrillionth</em> of a second. That means it doesn’t heat or damage the eye tissue and is extremely precise. This technology was developed in the 1990s and was approved to make the corneal flaps needed for LASIK in 2002.
