    • CK (conductive keratoplasty) – Uses radiofrequency energy to correct some types of farsightedness
    • Laser eye surgeries, including LASEK, LASIK and PRK – Use a laser to reshape your cornea and improve your eye's ability to focus
    • Lens implant surgery – Replaces your natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to correct your vision
  • Glaucoma surgery – Reduces pressure in your eye 
  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) – Improves the appearance of droopy or saggy eyelids
