What are the alternatives to LASIK surgery?

Q: I am a 26 years old male. My eye power is 3.5 in the right and 5.0 in the left eye. I wanted to go for LASIK surgery but the doctors told that I am not eligible for it because my cornea is very thin. In this case, how can I impove my vision?

A:For a refractive error correction of 3.5 and 5 there are other options apart from LASIK. You haven't specified whether your power is + (plus or hyperopic) or minus (myopic). Whatever be the case your eyes need to be examined in detail to assess the best technique to maximize your vision. Implantable contact lenses can help people with thin corneas. Please contact a refractive specialist for a complete examination.
