The retina is a structure at the back of the eye. When the light is focused by the cornea and the lens in the center of the eye, it is focused to reach the retina at the back of the eye. If the retina is detached, it is now sitting in an incorrect position to absorb the light and the ability to absorb light may also be depressed. Patients who have a form of retinal detachment are advised to seek an opinion from a retinal expert in order to have their retinal detachment addressed first and should that be successful, they may then become candidates for laser eye surgery….
Laser vision correction works on the principal whereby when light enters the eye, it is bent incorrectly to meet at a finite point at the retina, so by applying a laser to the surface of the eye we are able to change the shape of the surface of the eye to correspond to the refractive error that the patient has and thereby allowing the light to be properly focused, so that it reaches the actual retinal plane in a very precise manner….
