Brief Answer:
Your age and refractive correction is ideal for it

Detailed Answer:
Welome to WWW.WWWW.WW
Your age of 25 yrs and and if your refractive corretion has been stable for 2 years are apt prerequisites for a LASIK. You will need to go a few other tests, the most important being a pachymetry. Pachymetry calculates the thickness of your cornea and you need to have a thick enough cornea for lasik.

please do get back to us if you have further questions.

My Dear,
we make a flap by keratome,lift the flap ,do the laser and reposit the flap.
Same flap can be made by cutting with laser,that is where the cost difference occurs.
