Refractive surgery refers to the procedures used to correct conditions such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia. These are all refractive errors that affect a person’s vision.
There are a few main benefits of refractive surgery, mainly that it decreases a person’s need for glasses or contact lenses. This is a very attractive option for people who feel burdened by wearing glasses or contacts every day.
You may have heard of the most common type of refractive surgery, called LASIK surgery. LASIK surgery is a procedure that uses laser technology to reshape the cornea and improve vision.
It is important to have a comprehensive eye exam before moving forward with refractive surgery. This allows a doctor to diagnose your refractive error as well as screen for any potentially complicating issues.
