There are two types of surgeries as told by my doctor one is LASIK and the other is LASEK. I underwent LASIK as it was cheaper and he said that he was comforatble in that. He said that both of them produce the same results. the procedures are different but both are safe. I amd happy

i think you should wait for some more days before going for lasik surgery as the long term effects are not known to the doctors.

laser operation is possible. But it can only be done if your vision (power) is stable.
