Laser vision correction surgery, also known as refractive surgery, modifies the shape of the cornea (the clear window of the eye) to improve a patient’s vision. This procedure can reduce a patient’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses, and may eliminate the need for them altogether.

Laser vision correction surgery reduces the need for glasses or contact lenses. This treatment can help patients with a range of sight problems, including:
