What is Laser Eye Surgery?

Refractive Surgery, more commonly known as Laser Eye Surgery, is the general term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems, refractive errors and eye diseases. Laser Eye Surgery is received to treat problems such as shortsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism (blurred vision) and presbyopia, with the aim of reducing dependency on prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.

The most commonly performed Laser Eye Surgery procedure is LASIK (laser insitu keratomileusis), with thousands of patients having successfully undergone treatment.

The causes of loss of vision are extremely varied and range from conditions affecting the eyes to conditions affecting the visual processing centres in the brain.
