We offer a number of corrective eye treatments at Optical Express. Some patients may not be suitable for laser eye surgery and so lens surgery may be recommended instead.

With laser eye surgery the cornea, which is the outer window of the eye, is gently reshaped to improve vision. When undergoing lens surgery, the lens of your eye is either enhanced or replaced.
