The refractive errors may be treated by either of the following ways:
Glasses: This is the simplest and most popular way of correcting refractive errors.
Contact lens: This option is cosmetically much better. However, it requires though maintenance and cleaning of the contact lenses, and regular eye checkups. There is also a sight risk of allergy and infection to the eye, if the contact lenses are not cleaned properly.
Refractive laser surgeries: Get rid of the need for glasses and are increasingly becoming popular with the advent of safer and more predictable laser treatments.
