What is the LTK procedure?

The surgeon will put local anaesthetic drops in your eyes to numb them before surgery. He or she will then use a laser which emits heat to shrink the cornea. It does so by heating small, dot shaped areas of the cornea.

This will cause the cornea to contract (shrink). And, the curvature of the cornea becomes steeper.

What does this mean for you? This means clear vision as light will be able to pass through the eye in a normal fashion.
