Refractive Surgery

Refractive Surgery is also known as:

  • Laser Vision Correction

Refractive Surgery is an eye surgery used to improve the refractive state of the eye and decrease or eliminate dependency on glasses and contact lenses. This can include various methods of surgical remodeling of the cornea or cataract surgery. The most common methods today use excimer lasers to reshape curvature of the cornea. Successful refractive eye surgery can reduce or cure common vision disorders such myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. The value of enhancing ones quality of life with Refractive Surgery is well worth the investment.
