This is vision surgery - Laser, Lasik, Lens and more....
Whether you choose to change your life through laser vision correction, want freedom from reading glasses, or want the most advanced lens implant when you have cataract surgery, great results and safety should be at the forefront of your mind. There are now a huge number of options for vision surgery including correction of very high levels of short sight and astigmatism. Corneal transplantation for conditions like Fuchs' dystrophy have also evolved to the point of keyhole cell transplants.
The key to better vision and the best standards of care depend on the skills and experience of your eye surgeon.
