farsightness options?
Hello,
The quick questions is are there truely good visions correction options for me?  46, male, active lifestyle with the following:  rt eye +4.25 cyl .5 axis 11   lt eye +4.5  cyl +1.00  axis 24    One doc has told me lasik is not a good option but suggested a clear lens replacement with a multifocal lens as an option.  another doc has suggested that PRK might be an option.  in reading here, i have concluded that multifocal lens are not a way i would like to go but that mono type lens have some appeal.  i have not found anything, such as guidelines, that suggest who is and who is not suitable for lasik and or PRK treatments.  do such things exist?  i look forward to your insight.  thank you

No there are no good options if you mean a treatment that is inexpensive, risk free and gets you away from glasses entirely.

If you are willing to accept risk, expenses, glasses for reading/shopping/computers

1. Contact lens
2. Conductive Keratoplasty
3. Hyperopic lasik
4. Clear lens extraction.

You will need to take it from there as I said all involve risk, expense, failing to meet your expectations
