What is refractive eye surgery?

If you have a refractive error such as farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, nearsightedness (myopia), or presbyopia, then refractive eye surgery is a method to improve or correct the vision. Different surgical procedures are there to correct the eye’s focusing ability by clearing the round dome present at the eye front or with cornea reshaping. The most prominent and widely performed type of refractive surgery is LASIK. During this procedure, the laser helps to reshape the cornea.

    • Patients with nearsighted, refractive surgery techniques will reduce the cornea curvature which reduces the focusing power of the eye. Following the surgery, the images which are focused on the front of the retina, are pushed back directly or close to the retina.
    • Patients with farsighted will have a steeper cornea to increase the eye ability to focus on the retina.
    • Patients with astigmatism can choose refractive surgery which reshapes the irregular part of the cornea as it makes it symmetrical and smooth. The surgery helps to focus on the retina rather than being distorted due to light.
