In brief: Not many

In the U.S., refractive surgery using monovision can allow reading vision through one eye, while distance is seen through the other! there are pluses and minuses to this technique.
Clear lens extraction (cle) with implantation of a multifocal iol is available where the human lens is removed and replaced with one allowing multiple focal points. Coming soon to a doctor near you are new techniques.
