Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are many treatment options available for management of this condition. The most popular and most frequently done are laser refractive surgeries like LASIK.

The surgery is very safe and you can undergo the surgery to get rid of refractive errors.

Please mention her full refractive power, whether it is plus or minus and age of the person so that I can advise if she is fit for the surgery.
