What is the best option for corrective eye surgery? I currently need bifocal contacts
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

There is no eye surgery that will eliminate both your need for distance glasses and bifocals for near (presbyopia).

You could, however, have monofocal lasik or clear lens extraction where one eye is "set" for near work and one eye is "set" for far work.

Some people love this type of system; some hate it. I recommend that you try monovision in contact lenses before having it carved into your cornea forever or surgically implanted inside your eye.

Does this make sense to you?
