Refractive surgery is a term used to describe vision correction procedures that surgically change and improve the way light rays enter the eye and are focused on the retina. The goal is to achieve sharper, clearer vision.
Our experienced surgeons use the latest refractive technologies and surgical techniques to help patients suffering from such refractive problems as farsightedness, nearsightedness and/or astigmatism. As a result of refractive surgery, many of our patients are able to greatly improve their vision and eliminate or reduce their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
Please visit our contact page to schedule a consultation with one of our talented surgeons to determine if you are a candidate for refractive vision correction surgery.
While most people think of refractive surgery as exclusively LASIK, there are several other types of refractive vision correction procedures available besides this popular treatment. Our skilled surgeons are experienced in both laser and non-laser refractive surgery procedures. They offer such laser vision correction treatments as LASIK and PRK, and they also perform non-laser refractive surgical procedures such as intraocular lens (IOLs), Visian ICLs and Intacs corneal implants.
The field of refractive surgery has advanced tremendously since the 1980s when the first form of refractive surgery, called refractive keratectomy (RK), was performed in the United States. Today, our talented surgeons can select from a variety of refractive surgical treatments to help patients with different types of vision problems.
