REFRACTIVE SURGERY EVALUATION
Resolving Vision, One Eye at a Time
Refractive eye surgery involves reshaping the cornea (front surface of the eye) to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism (an irregular shape of the eye). This type of surgery requires a refractive surgery evaluation to determine which method is best for our patients. For more information on RES check out the American Academy of Ophthalmology website.
