The risks of customised femto-LASIK surgery are essentially the same as for any other LASIK surgery. Although it is not possible to list every single possible side effect or complication, in counselling patients for surgery we usually explain conditions that happen relatively common...

Any laser refractive surgery, whether LASIK, PRK or SMILE changes the corneal shape. Sometimes more, and sometimes less, depending on the amount of spectacle power that is to be corrected. There are a number of different types of contact lenses, but basically you can differentiate them into soft ve...

Hi, whether you will get a good result from LASIK surgery depends on many things, such as the result from your previous strabismus surgery, the type of strabismus, your best possible vision and the presence or absence of amblyopia/lazy eye, and how high your astigmatism is. You m...

Refractive surgery is usually recommended when your refractive error has stabilised, and that usually occurs between 18 - 21 years of age. If you are significantly older than that, or your refractive error has worsened significantly then a comprehensive evaluation by your ophthal...

Cataract surgery is essentially lens replacement surgery. As such, by choosing the appropriate power of lens implant (based on calculations using parameters such as corneal curvature and eyeball length)...

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
If you are asking whether refractive surgery can correct high myopia, then the short answer is yes. There are various options, including LASIK, epiLASIK, and Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery. The absolute limits of laser surgery go up to around -11D (provided cornea i...

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
This is a very good question. Compared to patients with lower level of myopia, it is indeed true that high myopes are more likely to have regression after laser vision correction (LASIK, SMILE, PRK). LASIK is known to have good predictable outcomes. However, studies had...
