No touch laser is popular surgery applied to correct vision problems. The eyes are operated with lasers to reshape the cornea. This procedure's main goal is to fix focusing problems in people who have astigmatism issues, or who are farsighted or nearsighted.

There are many methods to fix such problems, but the advantage of this application is that it is done without touching the eye. It is an extremely good choice for people who do not like to be touched by the eye and those with thin corneas.
