Woman's eye with laser

The physician's practice of UT Health San Antonio offers LASIK and refractive surgery options for qualified patients.

Refractive surgery could be the right choice for patients with refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia.

Refractive surgery is a surgical procedure that corrects common vision problems to reduce the dependence of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. A laser procedure called LASIK is the most commonly performed refractive surgery to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The LASIK procedure reshapes the cornea to enable light to enter the eye properly and focus onto the retina for clearer vision.

Not all patients are candidates for this procedure. There are other vision correction options available to those patients that are not candidates for LASIK. Contact our office for a consultation.

Refractive surgery services include:

  • PRK
  • Refractive intraocular lenses (toric, multifocal, restore)
