The procedures that save the person from glasses and achieve distance and near vision without glasses with laser or a different surgical intervention for this purpose are generally called laser eye surgery, refractive surgery in medical language. This laser eye surgery provides the removal of myopia (which is related to long sight), astigmatism and hyperopia problems (which is related to short sight) with certain conditions by reshaping the cornea, which is the transparent layer that filters light with the help of laser beam. Thus, the patient gains clear vision and correct focusing.
