Dr. Greg Moloney, MBBS, BSC MED, MMED, FRCSC, Ophthalmologist, talks about vision correction by RLE (Refractive Lens Exchange).

RLE Refractive Lens Exchange

When we speak of laser refractive procedures, we mean the use of a laser to correct the common refractive disorders: myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Many of the terms used in this discussion will depend on an understanding of the eye.

The basis for nearly all kinds of laser refractive procedures is the reshaping of the cornea. Myopia is corrected by making the cornea flatter, hyperopia is corrected by making the cornea more curved, and astigmatism is corrected by making the cornea more perfectly round (i.e. more like a soccer ball than an NFL football).
