Even less is known when femtosecond lasers are used for LASIK, he said.

"We know that suction is lower, pressure is lower, but since the procedure is longer, we are going to flatten the cornea for a longer time than with mechanical microkeratomes, and so some damage can still be caused to the optic nerve," Dr. Belda said.
