If you're one of the 160 Million Americans that suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, we can help. Many treatments are currently available for the correction of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), as well as astigmatism, and many others are currently in development or clinical trials. Each treatment has specific benefits and risks, and different treatments can correct different amounts of your required prescription. While there are many types of refractive surgery, this site focuses primarily on LASIK, which is performed with the excimer laser. This procedure has proved to be highly effective and safe for most ranges of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism and is readily accepted by ophthalmologists today.

Refractive Surgical Procedures Refractive Surgical Procedures

The most common refractive surgical procedures performed today are:

Any of the above procedures may be performed as a Monovision Procedure in order to help you avoid bifocals or reading glasses.

These procedures may be combined to suit your particular needs. For example, if you have extremely high myopia, you might receive a phakic intraocular lens followed later by a refinement with LASIK--a combination commonly called Bioptics.

The names of these procedures may be hard to pronounce, but the results in correcting poor vision due to refractive errors have been excellent. The high rates of success reported with these procedures--and LASIK in particular--have led to their widespread acceptance within the ophthalmologic community throughout the world.
