>> Dr. Tyrie Jenkins performed Hawaii’s first Laser in situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery in 1997 and has since completed 10,000 such operations. Here she adds drops to relax the patient’s eyes during the procedure. The 15-minute surgery uses a cold laser to clear away ruined tissue from under the corneal flap.
