What Is Refractive Surgery?

Refractive surgery is a medical procedure designed to correct common vision problems such as myopia, farsightedness, and astigmatism. These conditions result from imperfections in the shape of the eye, preventing light from focusing directly on the retina.

Refractive surgery aims to reshape the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, to enable light to properly focus on the retina, thereby improving vision. The most well-known refractive surgery techniques include LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy), and SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction).

Why Choose Refractive Surgery?

  1. Visual Freedom: Refractive surgery can reduce or eliminate your reliance on glasses or contact lenses, allowing you to experience a new level of visual freedom.
  2. Quick Results: Many patients experience improved vision within hours or days after the procedure.
  3. Enhanced Quality of Life: Enjoy the convenience of waking up to clear vision and participating in various activities without the hassle of corrective lenses.
  4. Long-Term Savings: While the initial cost of refractive surgery may seem significant, it can lead to long-term savings by eliminating the need for regular glasses and contacts.
