Laser Vision Correction

At Texas Eye Surgeons

Eyeglasses and contact lenses do a good job of correcting refractive errors but, they often get in the way or can be inconvenient for certain activities. Laser vision correction via LASIK or SMILE eye surgery has become a common option for individuals who want clear vision without contact lenses or glasses.

Texas Eye Surgeons offers various laser vision correction options to patients wanting crisp vision that meets their lifestyle needs.

Laser Vision Correction

Understanding your vision

Vision is the result of the eye refracting incoming light onto the back of the eye, called the retina. By normal vision the light rays are bend by the cornea, the front part of the eye exactly in one point directly on the retina, forming a clear image.

If the curvature of the cornea is not regular or the proportions of the eye are not exact, the light cannot be brought into sharp focus at the back of the eye. This causes a blurry, unfocused vision.

Normal vision: A perfectly curved cornea focuses light directly on the back of your eye, called the retina.

Myopia: Myopia, or nearsightedness, is caused by a cornea that is too curved for the given length of the eye causing light rays to focus in front of the retina instead of on the retina. This causes distant objects, such as street signs or people across a room, to appear blurry. Near vision objects, such as reading a book or writing text messages on your smartphone, will still be focused without glasses or contacts.

Hyperopia: Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is caused by a cornea that is too flat for the given length of the eye, causing light rays to focus behind the retina instead of on the retina. This causes near vision objects, such as books and smart phones, to appear blurry. Distant vision objects and tasks will still be sharp without glasses and contacts.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism is caused by a cornea that is shaped more like a rugby ball, instead of round like a basketball. This condition creates many variations of distorted, hazy vision for both near vision and distant vision. Almost all people have some degree of astigmatism, and it often combines with myopia or hyperopia deteriorate.
