you are having high power in right eye and left eye is absolutely normal.How much is the vision in right eye with glasses that you have not mentioned.If its lazy eye then definitely contact lens will help.IF VISION is good/OK that you can go for lasik if you are having adequate corneal thickness and normal corneal orbscan.BUT HOW MUCH IS SQUINT PART THAT WE DONOT KNOW SO BETTER CONSULT SQUINT SPECIALIST AND LASIK SPECIALIST PREFERABLY IN DELHI OR LUCKNOW.

i do not think that allahabad has lasik facility and you have to come to lucknow for lask. ilasik will take care of the anisometropia, the difference in power of two eyes.this degree of difference in power means that you can not use glasses and have to use contact lenses.even after lasik if you feel that squint is present then squint correction is to be done to make eyes straight.

Dear richa , getting a LASIK is not the remedy as LASIK can only remove your glasses & not improve upon your vision or your squint , as LASIK IS A COSMETIC PROCEDURE. To get rid of glasses , you can go ahead with LASIK TO be away from glasses & a squint surgery to look acceptable in the society , to complete it's a cosmetic issue
