Refractive surgery is a method of correcting vision without the use of contact lenses or glasses.

LASIK LASIK is the most commonly know refractive surgery. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser. Initially a corneal flap is cut, the LASER is applied, reshaping the cornea and the flap is put back in place.

PRK is an alternative to LASIK. Similar to LASIK a laser is used to reshape the cornea, however, unlike LASIK no corneal flap is required. Healing takes longer than LASIK but results may be more precise.

PIOL is an additional procedure. The technique called Phakic IOL involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.

Intraocular lens or IOL CLE or clear lens exchange is another procedure. Essentially CLE is identical to cataract surgery except the patient doesn’t have cataracts. The natural lens of your eye is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens.

If you are interested in refractive surgery please let us know. Refractive surgery is not to be taken lightly. Detailed testing is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery. If testing shows you to be a good candidate, we can help you choose the refractive surgeon most appropriate for your case. Dr. Weber will provide the post-operative care for your refractive surgery.
