What is refractive surgery?
Many people have heard about refractive surgery and may not even know about it. Vision corrective surgeries, like LASIK, PRK, and refractive lens exchange, are all types of refractive procedures aimed to correct a patient's eyesight and reduce or eliminate their dependence on glasses and contacts. The doctors at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana focus on providing high-quality care to our patients and will help you select the best refractive surgery for your needs. Schedule a consultation at our Bloomington, IN office to learn more about the refractive surgeries we offer and which is best for your unique needs.
What should I expect from refractive surgery?
At our Bloomington, IN office, our team is thrilled to offer the following refractive surgeries for patients:
- LASIK reshapes the cornea to improve your eye's refractive ability and improve your sight
- PRK removes the epithelium of the eye to address the cornea's curvature and may be good for patients who don't qualify for LASIK
- Refractive lens exchange is typically performed on older patients and involves the removal of the eye's natural lens, which is then replaced with an artificial IOL (intraocular lens)
Depending on what is talked about during your consultation, we will craft a treatment plan that is fully personalized to you and outlines the cost and technique for each procedure.

What about contact lenses and glasses?
Although contacts and glasses are still common vision correction methods, they may not be the best option for everyone. Many people find that corrective lenses are a hassle and can be expensive long-term. This is because as your eyesight changes over time, you will need to continuously update your prescription and buy new lenses. Refractive surgery is a long-term solution for these individuals.
