See Below: Icl. It is a lens implanted surgically inside the eye. You may or may not be a candidate for this. Outside of lasik, contact lenses, or glasses that is pretty much your only option.

No glasses: There are some doctors who will perform phakic iol surgery or clear lens extraction surgery to correct vision. In theory, these are two methods to achieve excellent vision without glasses. However, make sure you discuss potential risks of surgery with your ophthalmologist.
