With the advent of new refractive surgery technology, laser eye surgery has become infinitely more safe and effective. At Texan Eye in Austin and Cedar Park, recovery from laser eye surgery is brief and the procedure is more comfortable than ever before. The laser eye surgery techniques used by our refractive surgeons have also been refined over the years to minimize the risks of side effects.

Laser eye surgery was invented in the 1980s. Worldwide, more than 16 million laser eye surgeries have been performed since that time. In the United States, laser eye surgery was FDA approved in 1995 and is considered a safe and successful treatment for patients with myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism who meet laser eye surgery eligibility requirements.
