Laser vision correction is a wonderfully effective approach to correcting vision by precisely reshaping the cornea at the front of the eye. Tiny pulses of laser light are used to recontour the cornea allowing your eyes to focus correctly and eliminate or reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses.
There are 2 main types of laser vision correction, LASIK and LASEK, and the only significant difference between the treatments is the way in which the eye is prepared for the treatment. The actual re-shaping process is exactly the same in both cases.
Laser vision correction could be the ideal solution for your myopia (short-sight), hyperopia (long-sight), astigmatism or reading vision
If a laser solution isn’t suitable, we can also correct your vision by implanting a lens, or replacing the lens
