Refractive Errors - imperfections in the focusing power of the eye, for example, hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism( DR. WILLIAM A. BOOTHE)

Dr William Boothe => Overcorrection is a complication of refractive surgery where the expected amount of correction is more than desired and often occurs where healing regresses less vigorously than predicted.
Acuity is clearness, or sharpness of vision.

INTACS, is a procedure for reducing a mild degree of myopia and is being studied for reducing both hyperopia and astigmatism. INTAC inserts are an alternative to laser surgery. INTAC inserts are tiny, crescent-shaped prescription material made of plastic polymer. The inserts are implanted in the periphery of the cornea during a surgery process. They are usually not noticeable and require no maintenance like contacts. The effect they have is to flatten the cornea for better focusing and providing crisp vision. INTAC inserts can be removed and replaced if a need for prescription changes. Removal of INTAC inserts causes vision to regress to the condition they were before the insertion of INTACs.
Topography - (tuh-PAHG-ruh-fee) The contours of a surface; as in corneal topography, which can be recorded by a corneal topographer.( DR. WILLIAM A. BOOTHE - LASIK SURGERY)

Dr. William Boothe => As we age, the lens of the eyes becomes rigid, loses its flexibility, and thus its ability to focus as well. The exact cause of presbyopia is still under research and debate. One theory is that the fibers in the lens become stiffened and are unable to change shape as well. Another theory is that the lens grows too big and is not able to change shape as well. Other factors such as trauma, occupation, and lifestyle may be factors as well.
Newer allergy eye-drop preparations: Recently, new classes of eye drops for the treatment of itching due to allergy have become available over the counter. Zaditor, a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drop, is an example of these.

Anterior Ocular Segment - A name for the parts of the eye that are in front of the lens, namely, the cornea, anterior chamber, iris and ciliary body
The inner sides of the eyelids, which touch the front surface of surface of the eye, are covered by a thin membrane (the palpebral conjunctiva) that produces mucus to lubricate the eye. This thin membrane folds back on itself and covers the visible sclera of the eyeball. (This continuation of the palpebral conjunctiva is called the bulbar conjunctiva.) Natural oil for the tears is produced by tiny glands located at the edges of the eyelids, providing additional lubrication for the eye. The main component of tears are formed by the lacrimal gland located under the upper lid at the outer corner of the eye. The tears are composed of a combination of the substances produced by the lacrimal gland, the oil glands, and the mucus glands. Tears flow toward the nasal side of the eye and drain into the lacrimal sac in the area between the eye and the side of the nose( LASIK DALLAS - Dr William A. Boothe)

LASIK DALLAS - Dr William Boothe => Flying Spot - A method of applying the excimer laser light used in refractive surgery. A flying spot laser is used, which has a 1mm - 2mm diameter light beam. The computer that controls the laser is programmed to send pulses to changing spots on the cornea, with no spots overlapping. Part of the ophthalmic laser system is an eye tracker, which responds to all eye movement during surgery. So even if the eye moves while it’s being treated, the entire targeted area will be treated, because the treatment plan has determined where the laser should shine, in the series of flying spots that will cover it entirely, and the whole system moves to correspond with any eye movements during surgery.
Dominant Eye - The eye that looks directly at an object. The non-dominant eye looks at it from a slight angle, and this combination creates depth perception.

LASIK EYE - Dr William Boothe => Astigmatism - a distortion of the image on the retina caused by irregularities in the cornea or lens
With any type of glaucoma, periodic examinations are very important to prevent vision loss. Because glaucoma can progress without you noticing, changes to your treatment may be necessary from time to time

Pseudoexfoliation abnormal deposits of white, flaky material seen on the structures in the front part of the eye that may be associated with cataracts and high pressure in the eye or glaucoma.
Transition Zone - In a laser procedure, the area between the optical ablation zone and the untreated area of the cornea. The laser removes tissue more deeply in the center of the ablation zone, and gradually tapers off through the transition zone, to the original corneal tissue outside the ablation zone.( LASIK EYE - DR WILLIAM A.

Dr William A. Boothe => To correct astigmatism contacts called toric, can be specially designed for people with astigmatism. Minor degrees of astigmatism can be corrected with soft toric lenses. High degrees of astigmatism are better corrected with eyeglasses or RGP toric contact lenses. Toric contact lenses are more expensive than normal contacts because of the extra correction provided on them. Surgical treatments for astigmatism include LASIK Eye Surgery (Laser in-situ keratomileusis) and CK (Conductive keratoplasty) for people over 40, Astigmatic Keratotomy (AK), and Orthokeratology. LASIK reshapes the cornea by removing tissue. In Astigmatic Keratotomy, an older treatment, an eye care surgeon places incisions in the periphery of the cornea to change its shape for better vision. Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, uses RGP contact lenses to gradually reshape the cornea. The reshaping of the cornea is not permanent however and the special contact lenses will still be worn a few hours a day to keep the new shape. Only minor degrees of astigmatism are best treated with this method. The correction of astigmatism is constantly being researched. New advances in materials and technology will greatly help people with astigmatism see clearly again.
If you notice words looking blurry on a page, a dark or empty area in the center of your vision, or crookedness of straight lines, you may have symptoms of macular degeneration. You may lose vision in one eye but be able to see well out of the other eye. You will notice central vision problems more quickly if both eyes have macular degeneration.

Conjunctivitis - (kun-junk-tih-VI-tis) Inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is a thin mucus membrane covering the inside surfaces of the eyelids and the white outer surface of the eye. It looks reddened and itches. It’s a contagious conditions and can be treated with eyedrops.
