Refractive Surgery

Refractive surgery is a branch of ophthalmic surgery aimed at correcting common vision problems by reshaping the cornea or, in some cases, by replacing the eye's natural lens. These surgical procedures are designed to reduce or eliminate the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Here are some common types of refractive surgery:

  • LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis
  • PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)
  • LASEK (Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis)
  • SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction)
  • Phakic Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)
  • Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
  • Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICLs)
  • Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)
