If you are seeking Los Angeles eye care experts, the eye doctors at the Stein Eye Institute at UCLA are happy to provide expert diagnosis. Additionally, we have various refractive treatment options designed to help you see better. Refractive surgery is an ophthalmic specialty devoted to correcting refractive errors including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), regular and irregular astigmatism and presbyopia. It is also used to treat myopia in patients who have keratoconus (steepening of the cornea). The UCLA Laser Refractive Center offers a number of advanced eye care procedures including LASIK and cataract surgery to treat these conditions. To understand how refractive procedures work, it is important to understand how eyes with refractive errors and keratoconus differ from the emmetropic or”normal” eye.
