If you need glasses or contact lenses to see clearly because of nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism (abnormal curvature of the eye), or presbyopia (cannot read up close) Refractive Surgery can eliminate this need. The most common procedures (Thin-Flap Lasik, Epi-Lasik, & AST) involve laser vision correction. This surgical procedure is used to adjust your eye's focusing ability by reshaping the cornea. Other procedures, such as PRELEX, involve changing the lens inside your eye. ICL simply adds a contact lens inside your eye.
If you desire to reduce your dependence on glasses or contact lenses, Refractive Surgery may be an excellent option for you. Since each patient is unique, there is no universal method that works for everyone. Your best option should be decided after a thorough examination and discussion with one of our surgeons.
