Vision Correction Surgery In Perth

Refractive surgery is a category of eye surgery which targets correction of abnormal focus (refractive error) in order to remove the need for glasses or contact lenses. There are 2 optical apparatus in the eye: the external cornea and internal crystalline lens. Vision correction can be achieved by treatment to the cornea or the lens or both. Laser vision correction targets the cornea. Refractive lens exchange surgery replaces the natural internal lens.  Implantable contact lens surgery does not alter either the cornea or the internal lens.  The lens implant is inserted between these two structures.
