What are the surgical methods available to decrease eye power?

Q: I am 17 years old male. I have -2.5 and -2.75 powers in my right and left eye respectively. What are the best ways to bring the number down and can it be completely cured? LASIK is one option, but I have heard that it can lead to dull sight or the intensity of light entering the eyes gets diminished, making it difficult to see at night. Is it true? Can the number come down by some exercises or other natural methods?

A:Blade free Lasik is the best option available provided your corneal thickness is adequate. There may be slight decrease in contrast sensitivity in initial postoperative period in some cases but usually that returns to normal within three to six months. Exercises can improve the tone of eye muscles but that does not have any effect on power of eye.
