A: Refractive surgery refers to surgical procedures that aim to correct or improve common refractive errors of the eye, such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, or presbyopia. These procedures reshape the cornea or use other techniques to change the eye's focusing ability and reduce the dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
A: The recovery time can vary depending on the type of refractive surgery and the individual's healing ability. In general, most people experience significant improvement in their vision within a few days to a week. However, it may take several weeks or even months for the vision to stabilize fully.
