Vision correction methods seem to expand every year.  More and better options become available as technology improves.  Here are some of the options in vision correction:

Laser eye surgery continues to top the list of vision correction methods.  There are a variety of forms of laser eye surgery with LASIK topping the list in popularity.  Laser eye surgery is a safe, successful form of vision correction for most people.  Laser technology continues to improve and even patients with difficult to treat eye problems are now being treated with LASIK, PRK, LASEK or some other form of laser eye treatment.

Contact lenses also continue in refinement and are now able to treat more difficult degrees of astigmatism and other problems with vision.  Beyond the standard soft versus hard contact lenses, there are spherical, toric, monovision, multifocal, hydrogel, silicone hydrogel and other.  Contact lenses are available for both daily and monthly use.

Prescription eye glasses have been around for hundreds of years (think Ben Franklin) and continue to please the majority of Americans.  Designer frames, bi-focal and tri-focal lenses are some of the options available to today’s modern consumer.
