The refractive anomalies
- What is refractive surgery ?Refractive surgery includes the techniques to surgically correct or eliminate the refractive anomalies of the eye.
There are three refractive anomalies :
The person has a good visual acuity close by, but blurred sight in distance.
The person has a bad sight in the distance and even more blurry at short distance.
The eye is not like “a football”, but more like a “rugbyball”. This produces a deformed image and can sometimes be combined with myopia or hyperopia.
- Who can be operated ?
Patients older than 18 years old who have a stable refractive anomaly for more than one year.
