Refractive Surgery

Many people who are tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses seek the help of refractive surgeons. Refractive surgery improves vision by correcting refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. A high percentage of patients enjoy 20/20 vision or better after their procedure.

Common refractive procedures include LASIK, PRK, LASEK, and refractive lensectomy (clear lens replacement or CLR)..

LASIK stands for laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis. During the procedure, a thin flap is created on the cornea using a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser. This flap is then lifted, and an excimer laser reshapes corneal tissue to alter the way light enters the eye. The flap is then replaced. The entire procedure takes only 15-30 minutes per eye. Recovery time is also short, and improvement in vision can be seen within a day. Vision often continues to improve and stabilize for a few weeks.

Dear Patients,

Many of you have recently been told by our office that your elective cataract surgery has been temporarily cancelled. We have been advised by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the Centers for Disease Control that we should stop all elective surgery immediately as a result of the Coronavirus epidemic. This recommendation includes cataract surgery and is in effect until further notice.

As surgeons we could never have imagined a situation in which we would not be allowed to offer a life changing procedure like cataract surgery. However, these are exceptional times. The recommendations to cease surgery are designed to protect the public health and to stop the spread of this disease.

As soon as we hear that this ban on elective surgery has been lifted, and that it is safe to offer surgery, our office will contact you to reschedule your procedure. Please do not call the office to ask for a reschedule date at this time as we do not know when we will be given the directive to restart surgery.

We appreciate your patience. Until then stay safe, and stay home.

Best regards,
Harry R. Pappas, M.D.
