How Does Laser Vision Correction Work?
Why do we need glasses?
How we see is determined by how light is focused through the cornea on the back of the eye.
When the cornea is shaped irregularly it causes us to see imperfectly. The shape of the cornea can cause us to be nearsighted, farsighted, or to see with an astigmatism; which causes overall blurry vision.
