Refractive Surgery is a term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems to reduce the dependence on prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Refractive Surgery is a method for correcting or improving the vision of people who have refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. There are various surgical procedures for correcting or adjusting the eye's focusing ability by reshaping the cornea. However, the most widely performed Refractive Surgery is Laser Eye Surgery, where a laser is used to reshape the cornea. Although there is no standard method for correcting refractive errors, an Eye Surgeon decides after a thorough examination of the eyes. Refractive Surgery Treatment depends upon the refractive error and while for people with nearsightedness, certain Refractive Surgery techniques will reduce the curvature of a cornea that is too steep, farsighted people will have Refractive Surgery procedures that achieve a steeper cornea to increase the eye's focusing power. The Laser Eye Surgery usually takes less than a minute while the entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes per eye. During the surgery, the Eye Surgeon places anesthetic eye drops in the eye so that the patient doesn't feel any pain during the surgery.
