Refractive surgery to improve vision has evolved since its beginning in the 1970s. Early techniques laid the foundation for researchers in their quest to surgically improve vision for millions and reduce or eliminate their need for glasses. Today, modern laser surgery is safe, effective, and millions of nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatic and presbyopic patients enjoy the freedom of clear vision.
As you read about the evolution of modern laser vision correction, it should be noted in the early development only low degrees of nearsightedness could be corrected. With the newest and latest technology not only can nearsightedness and farsightedness be corrected, but astigmatism and presbyopia can be corrected as well. Durrie Vision has been on the cutting edge of research by conducting the FDA clinical trials for all lasers in existence today.
