Experience Freedom from Lenses

If you suffer from a refractive error like myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, you probably long for a permanent solution to improve your vision. Laser eye surgery can provide you with just that. 

All you have to do is book a consultation, and we can help you find out what laser eye surgery can do for you and your vision.

What is Laser Eye Surgery?

Laser eye surgery, also known as refractive surgery, is the term for several procedures that can help correct various refractive errors. Laser eye surgery reshapes your cornea to change how light is refracted, enabling you to see more clearly.

There are several types of LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) surgery options available to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. These include:

  1. Traditional LASIK: This is the most common type of LASIK surgery. It involves creating a flap on the cornea and using a laser to reshape the underlying tissue to correct vision problems.
  2. Bladeless LASIK: Instead of using a blade to create the corneal flap, this type of LASIK uses a femtosecond laser to create the flap. This method is often considered safer and more precise.
  3. Wavefront-Guided LASIK: This type of LASIK uses advanced technology to create a detailed map of the eye’s unique optical imperfections, allowing the surgeon to make more precise adjustments to the cornea.
  4. Custom LASIK: Similar to Wavefront-Guided LASIK, custom LASIK uses advanced technology to create a personalized treatment plan based on the patient’s unique visual characteristics.
  5. Epi-LASIK: This type of LASIK uses a special instrument to create a thin layer of the cornea, which is then lifted up, so the laser can reshape the tissue underneath.
  6. PRK: Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a laser eye surgery procedure used to correct refractive errors. PRK uses a laser to reshape the cornea without creating a flap,

The Types of Laser Eye Surgery 

At Empress Eye Clinic, we offer consultations for all types of refractive surgeries, including: 


LASIK laser surgery is a popular refractive surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea. By reshaping the cornea, LASIK can combat refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism.

SMILE stands for “small incision lenticule extraction.” This laser eye surgery is an alternative to LASIK that only makes a small incision, potentially decreasing the side effects incurred in other types of laser eye surgery.

If you cannot get LASIK surgery due to your cornea being too thin, photorefractive keratectomy may be the option for you. PRK can reshape thin corneas to solve refractive errors with similar results to other types of laser eye surgery.
