U have not mentioned about your age, which is also crucial in decision making. any way lasik is ideal for those cases where power of the eye remains constant (should not vary constantly). frequent change in D power is in fact contra-indication for lasik your case frequent changes of glasses is mentioned hence take second opinion before going for surgery. with regard surgery, generally it is safer procedure with less side effects (provided done by expert), power wont become completely zero, but will help immensely to normalize vision with out the help of glasses.. u can also try for contact lenses.. take care...bye..

To undergo LASIK PROCEDURE,your glass power should be stable for at least one year.Before lasik procedure corneal thickness measurement and one corneal scan has to be done then only it can be decided whether u can go for lasik or not.Make sure that ur headache is only bczof eye problem or any sinusitis problem.consult any ENT Specialist also .if ur eyes are ok on above mention factors the u can undergo lasik.
