In brief: Depends

If your vision can be improved with glasses, this is likely a good solution.
However, visual losses due to disease, amblyopia, abnormality of the eye formation, etc. are conditions where refractive surgery would not help.

In brief: Yes

Refractive surgery can generally give you the same vision you get with glasses or contact lenses.
Uncommonly it can make it better than that.
