The vast majority of people’s prescription will fall within the treatable range for either Lasik or Lasek surgery and consequently these are the 2 most common laser eye surgery procedures.
If however you fall beyond the treatable range of laser eye surgery or for any other reason you are deemed unsuitable for laser eye surgery then you may have to consider another non laser refractive surgery. The main 2 treatments that you will have to choose from are implantable contact lenses or refractive lens exchange.
If you are extremely long sighted or short sighted then your prescription may well fall beyond the above laser eye treatment range and so you will therefore have to consider the other options that are available to you. For those people whose prescription is beyond the laser eye surgery parameters, then the 2 other surgical options currently available to you are either implantable contact lenses or refractive lens exchange. Both these treatments do not involve the use of a laser and are classed as intra-ocular procedures (within the eye). They are becoming more and more accurate at treating such high prescriptions and are therefore growing in their popularity.
