Laser Vision Surgery
Refractive surgery is a surgical procedure used to improve vision and reduce or eliminate the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. The cornea, the clear covering on the front of the eye, requires a certain curvature in order to produce a clear image. Refractive surgery improves vision by reshaping the cornea to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism.
Common refractive surgery procedures include the following:
Most patients enjoy 20/20 vision or better after refractive surgery. A thorough medical eye examination and consultation are necessary before a treatment decision can be made.
