Brief Answer:
It can be made out by slit lamp examination.

Detailed Answer:

Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.
I reviewed your history.

It seems from the history that you are having refractive error and you want to undergo lasik correction for its correction.
In lasik surgery a corneal flap is raised and this can be made out by careful slit lamp examination by eye doctor.
But by gross examination it is difficult to make it.

Hope this is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you

There are no medicines which can cure refractive error.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question. I reviewed your history and I can understand your concern.

Loco pilot post requires an eye sight of 6/6 in both the eyes without any refractive error.
Refractive surgeries like lasik can correct these refractive errors. By careful slit lamp examination ophthalmologist can find out that you have undergone lasik. But it is true as the time gap increases it becomes more and more difficult to identify that some body has undergone lasik surgery. Usually after 3-4 months it is difficult to make it that some body has undergone lasik surgery.

Unfortunately there are no medicines to correct refractive errors without doing surgery.

Hope this is helpful to you.
