This is not correct - the LASIK strikes the brain directly.
I'm wondering how the Lasik process can strike the brain directly, and not the eye. Given that the eye is connected directly to the brain through the optic nerve, but there is quite a bit of opaque material between the eye and the brain, which would block any light from the laser from reaching the brain directly. Just how is that possible?
