What is Refractive Surgery?
Refractive eye surgery includes various methods of surgical procedures—such as laser, lens implants and lens replacements—to correct vision. By reshaping the cornea (keratomileusis) or implanting a lens inside the eye, surgeons can eliminate or decrease a patient’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. If you’ve heard of LASIK, you already know one option of refractive surgeries available.
Refractive eye surgeries are used to treat common vision disorders such as myopia (nearsightedness),
hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (inability to focus on nearby objects, i.e. the need for reading glasses) and astigmatism (an imperfection in the curvature of eye's cornea or lens causing blurry vision at all distances).
