Question: What are the alternatives to LASIK and what are their risks and benefits?

Answer: LASIK is an elective surgery, meaning that you don't have to have LASIK in order to see. There are alternatives to undergoing laser vision correction. These alternatives include non-surgical options such as the use of glasses and contact lenses and a variety of refractive surgeries such as phakic intraocular lenses, conductive keritoplasty, and all of these options should be discussed with your ophthalmologist.
