LASIK Eye Surgery - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: LASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person's dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The term LASIK stands for Laser-assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, which is the clear covering over the front of the eye. LASIK is an outpatient surgical procedure that usually requires about 15 minutes per eye. Before the procedure, you will be asked to lie on your back and remain still. Topical eye drops will be used to numb your eye, and the area around the will be washed and cleansed. You may also be given a sedative to help you relax. Your doctor will use an instrument called the lid speculum to hold your eyelid open, and then place a ring on your eye that create suction on the cornea. You may feel pressure and experience dimming of your vision at this point in the surgery. Once the ring is firmly in place, your doctor will attach a special device, called a microkeratome, to the suction ring. Using the blade on the microkeratome, your doctor will create a corneal flap by cutting approximately the outermost 20% of your cornea and lifting it carefully to one side. After removing the suction ring and microkeratome, your doctor will use pulses from a computer-controlled excimer laser to reshape your cornea by vaporizing tiny portions of its interior. This part of the procedure usually takes less than 60 seconds. Your doctor will then replace the corneal flap into its original position and observe the eye for several minutes to insure bonding. Because the cornea bonds so quickly, healing is rapid and the eye does not require stitches. After the procedure, your doctor will administer antibiotic drops and place a shield over your eye to prevent you from rubbing it or from putting pressure on it while you sleep. Since you will not be able to drive immediately following the procedure, you will need to make arrangements for a ride home.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical Legal Art has always performed quality and efficient work. The doctors that review the exhibits are always amazed at the precise descriptions and drawings."

Michael Beckman

"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury lawyers."

Aaron R. Larson, Esq.
President

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."
