Refractive Surgery - R

Refractive eye surgery is any eye surgery used to improve the refractive state of the eye and decrease or eliminate dependency on glasses or contact lenses. This can includevarious methods of surgical remodeling of thecornea or cataract surgery. The most commonmethods today use excimer lasers to reshape the curvature of the cornea. Successful refractiveeye surgery can reduce or cure common vision disorders such as myopia,hyperopia and astigmatism, as well asdegenerative disorders like keratoconus.
