hello
you are having myopia but your cylindrical power is more .before any operation we do scan of cornea,see thickness of cornea.YOU CAN GO FOR LASIK BUT CHANCES ARE THAT YOU MAY HAVE SOME residual power even after surgery.phakic iol ,icl are other options but you have to go any good institute.

Hi,thanks for query.Surgery for myopia depends upon factors like corneal thickness etc.Please visit a lasik surgeon and get your eyes examined first.Then only you can have some idea.bye.

I have scleral buckling done on 9 April 2012 and vitrectomy for retinal detachment on 28 May 2012 on my right eye. I am recovering and my vision is 6/9 (pin-hole). But I am seeing wavy lines from the operated eye. What are the causes of the wavy lines I am seeing and will the wavy lines go off later? If not, what are the possible intervention, physically or medically, to correct this? Thank you. Eddie

Hi Doc, I have been experience from time to time but occasionally acute pai below left eyebrow in the last 15 days. The pain lasts for a couple of minutes and disappear lay. When it pains, it pains acutely and every for that two minutes. I have been duagonised for partial nasal blockage and I am undergoing a surgery for deviated nasal soetuum and clearing the blockage. Is thus pain attributable to the sinus and that issue. Will it go off after the surgery? Thanks Kar

Hi there, well my problem seems to be after consulting my eye specialist doctor, about pain in my right eye only at the corner on right side it feels like in the back of the eye, it makes my eye lid feel heavy and closes up at times, I do not have headaches just a throbbing behind eye very irritating, my doctor said I have what`s called sinus behind the eye? So he prescribed two types of eye drops to help, my eye does not close over completely okay, but it is like it feels my eye wants to close up. I had cataract operation 2 year ago, all has been good since, and I wear reading glasses when need to, but I am deaf and I had a bit of trouble understanding exactly afterward what he is on about, as I can only relate sinus problem! usually to deal with nasal, hayfever, or been a drug habit! But I don t take drugs as in like being a junkie! . So it is something that has come about out of the blue with me, I am 65 y/ old, but I have had a sinus problem in my life, but never been told about it being related to the eye? So can you explain a bit just what it is actually, I do not strain my eyes over a computer or game pads okay. I take the eye drops for a couple of weeks I think until bottle is empty. People say to me I suffer bad headaches or migraines, no I don t. But I am a bi-polar schizophrenic. Hope you can follow this, as I don t really know how to say it any other way. The eye doctor did test and this is what he said I have, a sinus in corner of right eye . Thank you doctor for your time, Yours Ted Tranter, Albury Australia.
