A mechanical microkeratome (a blade device) or a laser keratome (a laser device) is used to cut a flap in the cornea and a hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is then folded back revealing the stroma, the middlesection of the cornea. Pulses from a computer-controlled laser vaporize a portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced.
