Surgery to improve your eyesight is known as refractive surgery or vision correction. There are 2 different types: laser eye surgery and lens surgery.
Both types of surgery can make you less dependent on glasses or contact lenses. Research shows that both are safe and effective.
What type of refractive surgery will suit you best depends on a range of things, including your eyesight, eye health, age, budget and lifestyle.
Your surgeon will examine your eyes, assess your needs and help you decide on the best option for you.
