Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the Excimer laser while on faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures. During an initial consultation, the staff establishes eyes’ candidacy for the procedure by putting them through several pain-free tests and staring contests. On the day of surgery, Dr. Ashraf numbs each eye with drops, and more precise than William Tell’s cross stitches, the Excimer’s pulsating beams vanquish blurring agents on the cornea without damaging any other part of the eye. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and because of the peepers’ self-healing instincts, patients will need no stitches post-op. Afterward, patients may view the world with vision that surpasses 20/20, which means they can identify all 20 letters of the alphabet from across the room.
