Refractive Surgery Los Angeles
Refraction refers to the eye’s ability to accurately focus images. Refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism can interfere with healthy vision and make work or school difficult or even impossible. However, not everyone is happy with traditional vision correction options such as glasses or contacts. Refractive surgery can restore your vision and help you see clearly. If you have a vision problem and are interested in a permanent solution that can reduce or eliminate your dependence on corrective lenses, our Los Angeles refractive surgery expert can help.
Most commonly, refractive errors are corrected in a type of refractive surgery known as LASIK, which reshapes the cornea using a laser. It is extremely effective in those with nearsightedness. Refractive surgery can reduce the curvature to allow the eye to focus properly on images that are both near and far away. Those with farsightedness may need a different technique to create a steeper curve in a flat cornea to allow the images to be focused directly onto the retina. Those with astigmatism have irregular corneas that may benefit from LASIK to smooth the cornea and allow images to be clearly focused. Our expert in refractive surgery in Los Angeles can help you explore your options and determine the best type of treatment for your needs.
