Laser surgery is an approach that enables precise vision correction adjustments. Lasers allow your practitioner to alter the tissues within your eye in a manner that simply cannot be matched by the human hand.
Once more science-fiction than fact, lasers are now commonly used in all types of surgery, including ophthalmology procedures.
Numerous laser procedures can improve your vision. Some of the more common types of laser eye surgery include:
Laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a surgical procedure that creates a flap in your cornea before reshaping the underlying tissue to improve your eye’s ability to focus light.
A computer imaging program creates detailed imaging to guide the procedure. LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Like LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) also reshapes your cornea to improve focus. This approach, however, only alters the surface of your cornea, not the underlying tissue.
Clear Lens Extraction is a type of refractive surgery that removes your natural lens and replaces it with an artificial lens. This approach, sometimes called refractive lens exchange, can correct nearsightedness or farsightedness.
When this treatment is combined with LASIK, it can also correct astigmatism. Presbyopic lens exchange replaces your natural lens to correct presbyopia.
