What keeps the flap in place after LASIK surgery?


The flap created in LASIK eye surgery stays in position after surgery without stitches.

It protects the treated areas of the eye and enhances healing. The flap does not need stitches because of specific cell action within the eye.

Endothelial cells, which line the deepest surface of the cornea, funnel fluid from the exterior to the interior of the eye. This suction instantly helps to hold the flap onto the eye. In addition, epithelium cells, the outer layer of the cornea, heal rapidly and bond the flap to the cornea.
