Laser vision correction is a highly successful method of correcting myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism. Millions of patients worldwide have undergone this treatment to free themselves of glasses and contact lenses. There are three forms of refractive laser eye surgery: PRK, LASIK and INTRA LASIK. All techniques use precise computer controlled excimer laser pulses to reshape the surface of the cornea and correct its focusing power.
