Frequently Asked Questions

What is laser refractive surgery?

Laser refractive surgery involves the use of a laser to correct vision problems such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. There are many types of refractive surgery such as LASIK and PRK. 

What is LASIK?

LASIK is a type of refractive surgery that corrects for myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. A corneal flap is created, and a laser is used to reshape the cornea so that light entering the eye focuses on the retina. The flap is replaced which allows for fast visual recovery with minimal discomfort. 

What is PRK?

PRK is a type of refractive surgery that corrects for low degrees of myopia and astigmatism. A laser is used to reshape the cornea so that light entering the eye focuses on the retina. Patients who are not good candidates for LASIK are often good candidates for PRK. 

Can I get both eyes corrected at one time?

Yes, both eyes can be corrected on the same day. 

Will I be asleep during the procedure?

Laser refractive surgery is usually performed under a local topical anesthetic and does not require the patient to be asleep. A light sedative may be used to help you relax. 

How much does laser refractive surgery cost?

The cost of laser refractive surgery varies, depending on the procedure performed. Bonner Eye clinic offers to make Refractive Surgery an accessible procedure for a variety of people. Please contact us for more details.
