Hello...best option is lasik laser....which is very simple procedure. But before undergoing lasik there are few testd which need to be done like pentacam test for corneal topography and thicknrss...schirmer test to rule out dryness and retinal examination. If these are normal..go for lasik ....if these are not normal ..dont get disheartened..there is another option of phakic contact lens...i hope this will help
