What is refractive surgery?

The surgical correction of refractive error in the human eye is referred to as refractive surgery, a subspecialty of ophthalmology. Over the past few years, it has evolved into a highly specialized field. Refractive surgeons can correct refractive errors on a case-by-case basis using a variety of refractive surgical techniques. There are now multiple methods of performing corneal and lens-based refractive surgery that consistently meet the clinical requirements for safety, effectiveness, and predictability.

What is a refractive error?

Refractive errors are when the light that is focused onto the retina at the back of your eye is not focused correctly. This error is measured in diopters (D).

Nearsightedness (myopia) is when people can see near objects clearly but have difficulty seeing things that are far away. This occurs because of an error in the eye’s shape that causes light to focus too far in front of the retina.

Farsightedness (hyperopia) is when patients have trouble seeing near objects, such as reading. In this error, light is focused too far behind the retina.

Both myopic and hyperopic errors cause vision to be blurry.

Astigmatism may also be present in conjunction with myopia or hyperopia, or as a stand-alone condition. Astigmatism is when there is a mismatched curve in the cornea or lens. The cornea is shaped more like an oblong football than a basketball. This results in the light refracted onto the retina to be focused on more than a single point.

How does refractive surgery correct blurry vision?

If you have refractive errors, it’s due to the inaccurate focusing of light on your retina due to some abnormality in the cornea or lens of your eye.

Glasses and contacts basically are an artificial, temporary means to counter-correct the focal point of light on the retina. They adjust the focal length of the light before it enters your eye.

Refractive surgery seeks to permanently correct your eye’s focal point by addressing the shape of your cornea or lens. This is done by a refractive surgeon using lasers to reshape the cornea and/or implantable lenses and contacts.
