Types of Vision Correction - Which Is Right For You?


by Nicola Kennedy


There is no dearth of options when it comes to vision correction. Several types of vision correction techniques have emerged in the recent years, with each year witnessing the birth of a new set of vision corrective procedures. Furthermore, many of these techniques are safe and reliable.

Even amidst a lot of options, laser eye surgery is the preferred eye corrective surgery. Prolific technology has lead to the invention of improved lasers, which boast of immensely high precision. Such advanced technology ensures that laser eye surgery retains its top spot among corrective eye surgeries and remains a safe procedure.

Another option for eye correction is lens transplant. This is a popular alternative to laser eye surgery. Essentially, lens transplant is the same as cataract extraction, where the faulty lens is extracted and a clear intraocular lens is implanted. Though this procedure can be used to treat many types of vision impairments, it is highly beneficial in case of farsightedness (with a high refractive error).

Let's face it. Not everyone is comfortable with a surgical procedure. For years now, people have donned spectacles or contact lenses to correct their vision impairments. Spectacles and contact lenses are a much safer proposition than a surgery, and pretty much affordable as well. With spectacles coming in great styles and designs, they could well be a strong fashion statement for you. If your job involves substantial field work, or you are the sporty type, you would rather go in for contact lenses. Spectacles and contact lenses are a simple and affordable alternative to surgery.

Only you can be the judge of which alternative to choose. Carry out a basic research, thoroughly examine and discuss your case with an experienced doctor, and then only decide on what procedure can be the best bet for you. Eyes are precious, so don't jump on any conclusion without carrying out sufficient research.
