Laser treatment for correction of refractive errors are now available.

There is a complete array of tests like corneal topography, corneal thickness, dryness assessment etc once you fulfill these tests and there criterion and be sure that your power is stable over last one year, then you can go in for LASIK. Contact lens use is another option that you may try.

Take care

Hi Krish,thanks for query.The success of surgery depends upon selection of eye.There has to be some conditions which needs to be fulfilled before going for surgery,so before going for procedure thought check up of eye is needed.You can go for this if you are fit.There are no long term side effects in expert hand.Still as of today it is a cosmetic procedure.bye.

Hi Kish, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
If you want, you can go ahead with the surgery after consulting your Ophthalmologist. It is a successful surgical Procedure. The surgical options include, Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK), Laser-assisted subepithelial keratomileusis (LASEK), Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), nterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implant. All These eye surgeries have some degree of risk, and possible complications from these eye procedures include infection, corneal scarring, vision loss and visual aberrations, such as seeing halos around lights at night. Discuss these potential risks with your doctor. Eat healthy nutritious diet which should include fresh fruits and Green leafy vegetables. Wear your Glasses regularly and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
