Refractive laser eye surgery encompasses different procedures designed to reshape the cornea – the transparent front surface of the eye, to correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. These advanced surgeries utilise state-of-the-art excimer lasers to precisely remove corneal tissue, reshaping the cornea to improve how light is focused onto the retina.
The journey to improved vision begins with a comprehensive eye examination and consultation with one of our experienced ophthalmologists. During this assessment, your eye health, refractive error, and visual needs will be thoroughly evaluated to determine your eligibility for refractive laser eye surgery.
Based on the evaluation, the ophthalmologist will recommend the most suitable refractive laser eye surgery procedure to address your specific refractive error. Common procedures include LASIK, PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy), SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction), and others.
Suitability criteria for refractive laser eye surgery is the same as those for PRK and LASIK. Please see “Am I suitable for Laser eye surgery section” to assess your possible suitability here.
