What Is Refractive Surgery?

The cornea and lens work together to focus light on the retina at the back of the eye, enabling light signals to be transmitted via the optic nerve to the brain for interpretation. An irregularly shaped cornea disrupts this process, causing light to bend incorrectly and resulting in blurred or distorted vision. Conditions like nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia) are prevalent across various age groups and typically corrected with glasses or contacts. However, for those seeking a more permanent solution, refractive surgery offers a chance to enhance vision and decrease dependence on corrective lenses.

At Erdey Searcy Eye Group in Columbus, OH, we offer refractive surgery to correct these errors including LASIK, PRK, Implantable Contact Lens (EVO ICL), and Refractive Lens Exchange. Our board-certified ophthalmologists perform a range of procedures to reshape the cornea or implant an artificial lens, aiming to improve visual clarity and focus. Whether you're dealing with myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, or presbyopia (age-related vision issues), we're here to discuss how refractive surgery can improve your eyesight and life quality.

Typically, vision correction in Columbus, OH, is an outpatient procedure and quite swift. After applying numbing drops to your eyes, our refractive experts will employ lasers or other advanced methods to make precise incisions in the cornea and adjust its shape to improve both your vision and the focusing capability of your eye. Following your surgery, you may be given eye drops for post-treatment care, and our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions. The recovery period can differ based on the specific surgery conducted.
