Any laser procedure which corrects myopia or hyperopia, can also usually correct astigmatism. This includes LASIK, PRK/epiLASIK and SMILE. In general, I think LASIK or PRK/epiLASIK gives better results because of the availability of automatic cyclotorsion control, and also the ability to use sophis...

Pregnancy is a time of significant hormonal changes in the body, as the mother accommodates and nourishes a growing baby within her own body. These hormonal changes can lead to fluctuations in spectacle power. If this happens, it is often in the form of a myopic shift-ie short-si...

This is a great question, and one that I ask my patient to give the most thought to when considering cataract surgery. Namely whether to use a premium multifocal lens, or to consider a monofocal lens. To be clear, the monofocal lens gives the best quality image / vision for a pa...

There are several aspects to consider in answering this question. Firstly, there is no cure for presbyopia/'Lao Hua' , which refers to the loss of autofocusing ability of the eye. There are no cures, there are only compromises. That is why, in order to get relatively good vision...

There is as far as I know, no reliable statistical data to allow a definitive answer to this question. By this, I mean there are no well conducted, randomised blinded controlled trials comparing different procedures with respect to residual refractive error. As I mentioned in another answer, a Coch...

'Early' is a subjective term, and can mean different things to different people. The real question is: is the cataract affecting your vision, and by how much? A very early 'cataract' may not affect vision at all. In this case, the only possible benefit of doing the operation i...

If you have LASIK before your spectacle degree is stable, you may find some of your original spectacle power 're-appearing' after the LASIK procedure.
9 Jul 2019
Regression refers to the return of some amount of spectacle power that had been originally treated by the refractive procedure. It can happen after any refractive surgery, eg LASIK, epi-LASIK/PRK/TransPRK, ICL, and cataract surgery. To put things in perspective, when patients have been thoroughly c...

You might want to have a look at some of the answers to these previous questions to get more background information about corneal cross-linking and LASIK: Does corneal collagen cross linking with LASIK or ReLEx® SMILE® have benefits? Is corneal cross l...

With LASIK enhancement, the flap is opened and the underlying stromal bed is treated again to remove residual spectacle power. The effect on flap adherence is the same as after LASIK for the first time, ie that initially it will be weak and then eventually as the cornea heals, the adherence will go...
