Will my number come back after lasik surgery?

Lasik has become one of the most popular surgery for getting rid of glasses. Whether my number will come back after few years is a common question that comes to one’s mind. Lasik surgery is a permanent treatment. In this corneal shape is altered which remains permanent. However with age certain changes take place internally in the eye that can give you blurred vision e.g when you develop cataract in old age if you develop diabetes in later age, in women hormonal changes can give blurred vision. You will also get reading glasses after 40-45 years of age.All this is unrelated to lasik surgery. In people who do extensive near work can develop blurred vision called pseudo myopia if adequate rest from near work is not taken but this is temporary. So with good technology and proper preoperative safety tests number coming back after lasik is almost impossible.

Is lasik safe for me?

Lasik is the most popular surgery to get rid of glasses. One of the most important question that comes to mind is the safety of the procedure.

Lasik is one of the most studied and researched elective surgical procedure in the world. Lasik as a procedure is being done for more than 25 years and this procedure has got US FDA approval in 1998.

We follow very strict protocols and run a number of diagnostic scans for your eye to determine eligibility for lasik.

Scans like a topography, tomography, scheimflug images, Anterior segment oct, a thorough slit lamp examination , tear drop cytology are perofrmed and this data is analysed using predictive artifical intelligence alogirthms for safety and effectiveness.

The magnitude of your number and asatigmatism are also taken into consideration.

Lasik surgery is completely safe and effective for those who pass these tests.

Bladeless lasik surgery with contoura greatly increases the safety profile of lasik.

Approximately 20 % of people who want to do lasik surgery are not suitable for lasik for variety of health and medical reasons including thin and damaged cornea, keratoconus or some chronic conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes and autoimmune diseases.

For these patients other lasers and modes of treatment are available to get rid of glasses like ICL, Refractive lens exchange, PRK or ASA.
