What is Refractive Surgery?

Refractive Surgery is the surgical correction of nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), presbyopia (reading glasses) and/or astigmatism (imperfect surface).  The most commonly performed type of refractive surgery in the world is called LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) where a medical doctor (MD), an ophthalmologist, uses an excimer laser to reshape the curvature of the cornea to eliminate to refractive error causing the nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia and/or astigmatism.

Refractive Surgery is an excellent option for people who want to reduce to eliminate their dependency on glasses and contact lenses.
