Dr. Lori Moore, a refractive-surgery specialist and the founder of NuVision Laser, reshapes corneas and sharpens eyesight with traditional LASIK surgery. Before submitting their peepers to the laser’s beams, patients come in for a consultation and 20 minutes of preliminary testing to determine candidacy, then again for one–two hours of pre-op examination and competitive staring contests. On surgery day, topical anesthetic drops numb the eyeball before a microsurgical procedure cuts open a flap in the cornea. Dr. Moore then uses a laser to reshape the corneal surface and replaces the flap, with total time under the laser amounting to about one minute. Patients return the next day for a post-op exam and a triumphant glasses-smashing ceremony.
