Thanks to the advancement of science, we have a bundle of choices to correct poor eyesight and no, it is not just eye glasses. 

In this blog, we will give you a brief on some of the best vision correction options available around you. Read on. 

Types Of Vision Correction

Here's a list of most popular and convenient vision correction methods. 


Contact lenses

Contact lenses is rapidly gaining it's well-deserved popularity. Eye lenses or contact lenses are a popular vision correction option. They are thin, clear lenses that sit directly on the eye's surface. Contact lenses can correct the same vision problems as eyeglasses - the bonus is that they offer a more natural look.


Contact lenses can help correct all kinds of vision problems including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. They come in all eye powers and even different colors to help ramp up your looks. As they stick to your eyes, contact lenses allow higher oxygen to flow through your cornea and with their higher water content, they keep eyes hydrated and fresh for longer hours of the day. 


Contact lenses are perfect for all kinds of activities such as dancing and sports and they continuously protect your eyes from UV rays with their in-built UV protection technology. 


They can also provide better peripheral vision, that is, a full field of view, than eyeglasses. They come in an array of disposability options such as daily disposable contact lenses and monthly disposable contact lenses. While dailies mean that you can wear and discard them after a day's use, monthly contact lenses require regular cleaning and maintenance. Contact lenses are super comfortable and take some time to get used to. 



Eyeglasses are another common way to correct vision problems. They are easy to wear and come in various styles and designs. Eyeglasses can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The lenses in eyeglasses can be made from different materials, such as plastic, glass, and polycarbonate. However, eyeglasses can be cumbersome and inconvenient for certain activities, such as sports. There are also higher chances of your eyeglasses falling and damaging along with the discomfort of temple marks on the nose due to the rims on the frame. 


LASIK surgery 

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the cornea to correct vision problems. LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure involves creating a flap in the cornea, using a laser to reshape the cornea, and then replacing the flap. LASIK is a popular option, however, LASIK is not suitable for everyone, and there are potential risks, such as dry eyes and vision loss.


The Takeaway

In conclusion, there are various types of vision correction options available today, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. The best option for you will depend on your individual needs, preferences, and medical history. It is important to consult with an eye doctor to determine the best option for you.
