Many people look for a permanent solution to refractive errors, and that means surgery. Joseph Kamerling, MD and Paul Speesler, OD at South Jersey Vision Center can provide a refractive surgery consultation allowing patients to sit down and discuss their surgical options.

Refractive surgery is a popular procedure designed to correct the vision permanently.

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis is a surgical procedure that corrects:
The goal is to remodel the corneal stroma, which, in turn, reshapes the eye to correct the refractive error.
An ophthalmologist uses a laser to reshape the cornea, the transparent coating around the eye. The doctor cuts a tiny flap in the cornea and then uses the laser to excise some of the tissue.
