Eye Anatomy and Refractive Errors
Recent advances in refractive surgery are designed to permanently reduce or eliminate the need for corrective eyewear to see objects clearly. Today, more than 3 million corneal refractive procedures are performed worldwide each year.
Laser Vision Correction (LVC)
Laser vision correction includes those refractive surgeries that use an Excimer laser to microscopically reshape the corneal curvature, (the outer window of the eye) so that the light rays focus more precisely on the retina.
