Today's technology has improved significantly and makes laser vision correction safer and more precise than ever before.
Laser Vision Correction
One of the most critical components to great vision is the cornea – the “window” of your eye. The job of the cornea is to bend or refract light rays so that they focus on the retina. Vision disorders occur when the cornea fails to focus light exactly where it should on the retina. LASIK reshapes the cornea so that the light rays focus precisely where they should be.
Laser surgery corrects for the following visual disorders:
With hyperopia, the eye is too short, or the cornea is less curved, resulting in light rays that focus too far behind the retina. The result is blurred vision that is worse at near distance than far distance.
This is the most common refractive disorder. Myopia is the result of the eye being too long or a cornea that is too curved. This results in the light rays focusing in front of the retina. People who are myopic (nearsighted) typically see better at near distances but their distance vision is blurred.
Astigmatism occurs when your cornea is shaped liked a football with two different curvatures, therefore two different focal points. This causes images to appear blurred or ghostly because light rays are refracted unequally.
