Laser surgery can successfully treat many types of eye
diseases including retinal tears and detachment,
diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and
glaucoma. Laser surgery can prevent loss of
sight or provide improvement in vision.
In photorefractive keratectomy and laser
in situ keratomileusis lasers are used
to sculpt the cornea and reduce
or eliminate the need for
eyeglasses or contact lenses.
