LASIK Center at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute
The phrase “vision correction surgery” refers to any eye surgery that improves vision, including cataract surgery and corneal transplants. Over the years, the term has evolved to include techniques designed to correct refractive errors or common vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (irregular focus) and presbyopia (the loss of near focus that comes with aging). These optical problems collectively referred to as “refractive errors,” are more and more being treated with relatively simple outpatient surgery known as “refractive surgery.”
