Dr. Edward Perraut hasn't just performed more than 50,000 LASIK surgeries, he's also undergone the laser-based procedure. This boosts the credibility of the Johns Hopkins fellow and his fellow doctors, who speak from experience when advising clients on the LASIK procedures. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with a small incision to open a flap over the corneal surface. Using a small-spot laser beam, WaveLight's Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser helps reforms the curvature of the cornea according to calibrations customized for each patient. The flap is then closed and begins resealing immediately, thanks to the eye's ability to heal quickly. The surgeons furnish patients with home-care instructions, as well as recommendations for follow-up appointments. A small percentage may need touch-up procedures, which are included if the patient is a viable candidate. An FAQ page anticipates common questions, such as, "will LASIK affect my x-ray vision?"
