The cornea does not fully heal after LASIK

LASIK requires a huge incision into the cornea. Much bigger cuts than other forms of surgery, like cataract surgery, and actual corneal tissue removal. As a result, it never fully heals.

" . . . the flap which is created during LASIK treatment . . . does not heal completely anymore. Even after 8 - 10 years, the flap can simply be lifted with a spatula."
