PRK and LASIK is a refractive surgery that changes the shape of the cornea enabling a person to see without the use of glasses or contact lenses. The cornea is the part of the eye that focuses light to create an image on the retina. When light reaches a curved surface such as the cornea or the lens inside the eye, it bends. This bending of light is called refraction. More often than not, the shape of a person’s cornea is not perfect, which prohibits the light from focusing correctly on the retina. When this occurs, the eye is referred to as near-sighted, far-sighted or astigmatic. These problems are called refractive errors.
Drs. Reeve and Woods are trained in reducing and eliminating these refractive errors, so you can see without using glasses or contact lenses. They both perform many types of refractive surgeries and are therefore able to custom tailor the perfect procedure for each individual patient.
