Common Visual Problems

See how laser vision correction can reduce and/or eliminate your dependence on glasses and contact lenses if you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.

It is important to understand your specific vision problem and how laser vision correction can be used to treat it. Your eye shape and cornea are keys to better vision. When light enters the eye it is bent, or refracted, by a clear tissue on the front of the eye called the cornea. The cornea, in effect, acts like a lens to focus incoming light onto the retina on the back of the eye.surgery.
