Refractive Surgery

Vision correction surgery, also known as refractive and laser eye surgery, is a surgical procedure aimed at addressing vision issues. Recent advancements in this field have led to significant improvements, allowing many patients to achieve better vision than ever before.
 
Most vision correction surgeries involve reshaping the cornea, the transparent front part of the eye, to enable proper focusing of light onto the retina at the back of the eye.
 
LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis) is effective for correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
 
Photorefractive keratectomy is used to correct mild to moderate nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism.
 
Refractive lens exchange, also known as clear lens exchange (CLE), is similar to cataract surgery. During this procedure, the natural lens is removed and replaced with a plastic lens implant, correcting extreme farsightedness or nearsightedness.
 
PRELEX (presbyopia lens exchange) addresses presbyopia by replacing the lens with a multifocal lens.
