Treatment Types

Incorporating wavefront analysis, corneal topography, and aberrometers, advanced diagnostics provide detailed measurements of the eye’s optics. This in-depth analysis allows for personalized assessments of refractive errors, ensuring accurate and customized treatments.

Clear lens extraction is often considered for individuals with high levels of refractive errors, presbyopia, or those seeking a permanent solution to vision correction.

Single Vision: Single vision glasses are eyeglasses designed to correct vision at a specific distance, either for near vision (reading glasses) or distance vision. Unlike bifocal or progressive lenses, which have multiple prescriptions in one lens to address different vision needs, single vision glasses have a single prescription power throughout the entire lens.
Progressive Lenses: Progressive lenses, also known as multifocal or varifocal lenses, are eyeglass lenses that provide seamless correction for multiple vision distances. Unlike traditional bifocal lenses, which have a distinct line separating the near and distance prescriptions, progressive lenses have a gradual transition between the different prescription powers. This allows wearers to see clearly at various distances without the need for multiple pairs of glasses.

Contact lenses are thin, curved lenses placed directly on the surface of the eye to correct vision or for cosmetic purposes. They are an alternative to eyeglasses and offer advantages such as a wider field of vision and a more natural appearance. Contact lenses are widely used for correcting refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia.

Benefits of Refraction

SEE THE DIFFERENCE

Improved quality of life

Correcting refractive errors through refraction can improve a person's ability to perform daily tasks, such as reading, driving, and using digital devices, leading to an improved quality of life and overall well-being.

No need to worry

Refraction helps individuals achieve clearer and sharper vision by correcting refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia. This can enhance overall visual acuity and reduce eye strain.

Customized treatment

 Refraction allows eye care professionals to determine the specific lens power needed to address an individual's unique vision needs, taking into account factors such as the degree of refractive error and any asymmetry in the eyes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Refraction is a diagnostic exam to measure the power needed for glasses.

Refraction treatment, like eyeglasses or contact lenses, is recommended when individuals experience vision issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia, enhancing visual clarity and comfort.

Types of refraction errors include myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (irregular corneal curvature), and presbyopia (age-related difficulty focusing on close objects), affecting visual clarity.

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE):
RLE is a surgical procedure in which the eye’s natural lens is replaced with an artificial intraocular lens to correct refractive errors, similar to cataract surgery.
