The surgeries you are speaking of is not laser surgery. One is where you just insert an implant into the eye to eliminate the focusing problem. The other is where you remove the lens (before it becomes a cataract) and replace it with an implant. I think both surgeries will eventually replace any laser surgeries we have now. However, they have much higher risks than LASIK. LASIK does not go into the eye; these surgeries do and that is why they are riskier.
