The Refractive Surgery Service has an active clinical and research program and offers advanced surgical procedures, including LASIK and PRK using the latest in state-of-the-art laser technologies. This includes the LADARVision “flying spot laser.” In addition, the Service is involved in numerous investigations related to excimer laser surgery and corneal topography. Our newly established Center for Refractive Surgery and Treatment brings together renowned clinicians and scientists to conduct research in optical and surgical techniques to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and corneal disorders. Ongoing programs are investigating the many aspects of excimer laser surgery and LASIK for correcting refractive errors and decreasing a patient’s dependency on glasses and contact lenses.
