Alternative treatment options
While over 97% of patients have a prescription that is within the treatment range for corneal laser refractive surgery, there will be a small number that do not qualify due to their prescription, the shape of the eye or the health of the cornea.
If you fall into this category, there are alternative options available to you including phakic intraocular lens implantation, clear lens exchange, or, of course, to continue with glasses and/or contact lenses.
