Vision Surgery

Learn more about common eye surgeries:

  • Start here for an overview of the different types of surgery to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism; and the merits and drawbacks of each.
  • It’s the most popular vision correction surgery, by far. Learn what to expect before, during and after the procedure.
  • Complications from LASIK are few, but they do happen. It’s important to understand the risks, and how to minimize them.
  • Successful LASIK surgeons get that way from experience and the ability to screen out poor candidates for the procedure. Here’s the list of what makes you a good candidate.
  • An alternative to LASIK, PPK is a no-flap eye surgery. Learn about the advantages and disadvantages, as well as what to expect.
  • A number of relatively new procedures are addressing the age-related decrease in ability to focus on near objects, that was once correctable only with bifocals.
  • These small lenses or optical devices are inserted into the cornea to alter its shape and correct vision problems.
  • Sometimes because of disease or injury, the cornea becomes so damaged that problems cannot be corrected with eyeglasses, contacts, or refractive surgery such as LASIK.
