Until contact lenses were popularized in the 1950s, eyeglasses for the past seven centuries had been the only practical way to correct vision errors. Now, several modern approaches to corrective eye surgery range from laser reshaping of the eye's surface to surgical insertion of artificial lenses to correct eyesight. In corrective eye surgery, laser energy reshapes the curvature of the eye's clear front surface, the cornea, to alter the way light rays enter the eye. Artificial lenses surgically inserted into the eye also can refocus light rays to sharpen vision. In the surgery process, lasers are utilized to operate on the cornea and fix the parts of your eyes that don’t work, so that your eyesight becomes improved. The whole process of corrective eye surgery usually takes only a few minutes, depending on the patient’s present state of health. No matter how bad your eye sight was, after finishing the eye surgery treatment your eyesight result in a better vision.
Laser eye surgery refer to the process of reshaping the front surface of the eye (the cornea) in order to correct imperfections which normally affects the eye’s ability to focus. Sometimes depending on the treatment deemed suitable, a thin layer is usually lifted away gently from the surface of the surface of the eye so as to enable the laser to access the layer below and correct the prescription with pinpoint accuracy. This layer is carefully set back in place and even at times it’s protected with a clear bandage contact lens for 3-5 days while the eye naturally heals. All these operations are normally carried out using bladeless laser technology in order to eliminate potential complications that may emerge and improve the results for every patient that is treated.
Over half the people in the United States wear glasses or contact lenses. Optometrist, also known as “Eye Doctors” or “O.D.’s, have to provide there services in order to meet the demands. Optometrists have to be well-educated and friendly people.
...ter the treatment is completed you will notice a gradual improvement in your vision within a few days. It is very normal to see a few floaters in your vision after the treatment. Upon completion of the treatment the physician will schedule a follow-up visit within one to two weeks post laser.

Introduction Phacoemulsification is the main method for elective cataract surgery; however, in some cases (such as hard cataracts, zonular laxity or loss and inadequate pupil dilatation) it can be challenging to complete the surgery without complication even for the most experienced surgeons. In these cases, preoperative planning and cautious intraoperative management are critical to avoid intraocular injury. During the aging process, human lens undergoes progressive morphological changes, which lead loss of transparency.
In the early 1900’s, many surgeons began to popularize the removal of upper eyelid skin for aesthetic enhancement. In 1907, the American Conrad Miller wrote one of the first books on cosmetic surgery, Cosmetic Surgery in the Correction of Facial Imperfection, in which he diagrammed
