Laser Vision Correction (Refractive Surgery)

UPMC Content 3

Imagine waking up and being able to see the alarm clock; playing tennis or skiing without glasses sliding down your face; being able to swim without the nuisance of glasses. All this is possible with laser vision correction.

How can Laser Vision Correction help?

We use lasers to sculpt the cornea, resulting in improved or unaided vision, which can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. Laser vision correction (refractive) procedures typically cause minimal discomfort and take only minutes. The entire outpatient appointment usually lasts about one hour.

Is Laser Vision Correction right for you?

Laser vision correction can affect the way you see for the rest of your life. You should make your decision carefully, not quickly. After a comprehensive evaluation, our physicians will be able to determine if you are a viable candidate or not. See a list of frequently asked questions.
