Vision Correction (Refractive) Surgery

"Refractive Surgery" is our technical term for a wide range of surgical solutions to bend or refract the light coming into your eye and thus correct vision problems. We pick from a number of surgical procedures to find just the right approach for each patient. Our team, headed by Dr. Helen Wu, is exquisitely cross-trained and experienced in every kind of procedure from cornea adjustments via LASIK or PRK to corneal implants to laser and other cataract surgery.

Deciding on the vision correction procedure that is right for you is not simple and will be one of the most important decisions you will make in a lifetime. At New England Eye Center, our trained refractive team will discuss the many options available to you and help you compare the differences as they pertain to your visual and lifestyle needs.

At New England Eye Center, we pride ourselves on providing you with options. We mean ALL the options. Only here will you find the full range of procedures and options for improving your vision.


LASIK Surgery – the most popular laser surgery procedure because of prompt and permanent benefits

Visian ICL - Implantable Contact Lens – improve vision in patients who suffer from myopia, or nearsightedness

Premium Cataract Surgery – reverses the negative effects of cataracts by replacing the natural lens with an artificial one

Laser Cataract Surgery with Catalys – the new standard in precision cataract surgery with the CATALYS™ Precision Laser System

Premium IOLs – premium IOLs include both accommodative and multifocal lenses

Phakic IOL – lenses are surgically implanted in the eye (between the cornea and the iris) in order to correct myopia; reversible

Monovision – the dominant eye is focused for distance vision, and the non-dominant eye is focused for near vision

Intacs® & Keratoconus – corneal inserts are an advanced treatment method for individuals with nearsightedness and keratoconus

PRK – photorefractive keratectomy, changes the shape of the cornea to make your vision more accurate; option for LASIK

Dry Eye Treatment – can result from a decrease in tear production and/or an increase in tear film evaporation

Our team creates an individualized care plan that will optimize your results and make you see more clearly than ever before. The sum of the experience of our doctors and staff members and the technologically advanced techniques and systems we use to perform vision correction options well beyond laser eye surgery and result in excellent patient satisfaction.
