With laser vision correction and other refractive treatments now you can experience the freedom you have dreamed of without depending on glasses or contacts, ready to take on the challenges and the activities that mean so much to you. Laser vision correction can free you from the drudgery of glasses or contact lenses for the rest of your life. Today's laser technology can gently reshape the eye's cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism so the eye can focus correctly and vision becomes clear.
You can discover a new vibrancy of life with refractive surgery: a term used to describe several procedures designed to treat vision abnormalities. Irregularities that can be corrected include:
Nearsightedness (myopia) which occurs when light rays are focused in front of the retina instead of directly on the retina.
To correct nearsightedness: The cornea is made flatter by removing tissue from the center of the cornea.
Farsightedness (hyperopia) which occurs when light rays are not bent enough to focus on the retina.
To correct farsightedness: The central cornea is made steeper by directing the laser beam to remove tissue from around this area.
Astigmatism which occurs when light rays are focused at more than one point on the retina.
To correct astigmatism: The cornea is made more spherical by changing the pattern of the beam, removing tissue in one direction more than the other.
