What Types of Vision Problems Can Be Corrected by Refractive Surgery?

At one time, refractive surgery only applied to LASIK and PRK. But in today’s advanced procedures refractive surgery includes lens implants and cataract surgery.

Refractive procedures are performed by surgeons to improve the focusing ability of their patients’ eyes. They can reshape the cornea or implant a lens inside the eye to correct a variety of common vision problems, such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, or cataracts.
