    Vision correction surgery (refractive eye surgery) is a procedure that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, or presbyopia. Some common types of surgery are LASIK, LASEK, PRK, and more. Side effects may include temporary dry eyes. Results are improving -- most people have 20/20 vision after surgery for many years.
