About Laser Vision Correction in Adelaide
Laser Vision Correction, otherwise known as Laser Corneal Sculpting, involves the use of laser to reshape the surface of the eye.
The first laser sculpting was performed over 20 years ago and it is estimated that more than 30million people worldwide have had laser eye surgery
The aim of laser eye surgery is to restore normal eyesight and reduce or eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses. This is done to improve or correct myopia (short-sightedness), hypermetropia (long sightedness) and astigmatism (uneven curvature of the eye’s surface). These vision problems stem from the eye not being able to focus light exactly on the retina. All laser vision correction surgeries work by reshaping the cornea (the clear front part of the eye).
