Refractive surgery can reduce or eliminate a person’s dependency on contacts and glasses by correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. When patients come in for a consultation, the doctor will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if LASIK, LASEK, or lens surgery is the right approach. To perform the surgery, the doctor will use an all-laser system that reshapes the eye to an optimized, naturally aspheric (not perfectly round) corneal shape. Using this technique, precise, personal treatment to a broad range of patients is achieved.
