Looking at your question in totality, it appears that you have high myopia and want to achieve perfect eyesight with low risk of regression after refractive surgery. There are many great options available today, and if spectacles / contact lenses are not your thing, and you ...

The risk of regression after refractive surgery is similar between epilasik / Lasik, and is predominantly determined by the residual corneal thickness, how high the original myopia was, and other systemic collagen disorders that the patient may have. These risks can may be ...
19 Feb 2019
Absolutely! 6/6 vision is possible in the context of high myopia. The best way to know your visual potential is to have an accurate spectacle refraction performed. If you can attain perfect vision with the use of spectacles or contact lenses, then refractive surgery has a good chanc...

Hi, in general, the answer is no. The concern is that patients with Sjogren syndrome have very dry eyes, and LASIK (or any other laser refractive surgery including epiLASIK/PRK/TransepiLASIK/TransPRK/SMILE etc) will make the dryness worse. It's worth remembering that dry eyes ...
17 Feb 2019
There could be several possibilities depending on what your doctor meant exactly. One possibility is that the doctor meant that he/she cannot fully correct your myopia with LASIK, and that you would expect to have residual myopia even straight after any attempted LASIK correction. In this cas...
17 Jan 2019
Yes, generally speaking, the risk of regression is somewhat higher the higher a patient's pre-existing myopia before undergoing LASIK. Factors contributing to this include the fact that the corneal shape is changed more for high corrections, and also because some very high myopes may not fully stab...

To start off, I think the best thing for you specifically is to listen to your doctor's advice and get a pair of reading glasses. As I mentioned in my previous answer to your question, there is no cure for presbyopia or Lau Hua-which is the reason why you need reading glasses. Just for the sake o...

Cataract surgery and LASIK are never performed at the same time on a particular eye. Each has it's own indications, ie reasons for a patient undergoing the procedure. So if a person has a cataract, then they need cataract surgery and not LASIK. If a person does not have a cataract, but wants to r...
1 Jan 2019
If by 'longsightedness' you mean 'presbyopia' or in Chinese 'Lao Hua', then LASIK is not a method that can treat this no matter whether someone had prior correction for myopia or not. Again, LASIK is not and cannot be used to treat presbyopia per se. You might find prior answers to this related ...
21 Dec 2018
Yes, it is possible for a Lasik flap to be dislodged or displaced even 10, 15 years after a Lasik op. This is because a cut Lasik flap is not stitched or glued back - the corneal flap only adheres by tissue pressure. Thus, you can say that a Lasik flap never fully heals. If you h...
