Laser eye correction surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Laser eye correction surgery


Avatar f tn Most problems are local in the eye only and usually a elevated pressure in the eye. This resolves when the steroids are decreased or stopped. Dr. O.
Avatar m tn has anyone had laser eye surgery for fungal scarring in cornea to correct vision? Were the results satisfactory?
Avatar f tn Hi, i'm thinking about having laser eye surgery and have been doung some reading up about it. Has anyone had complications with lasik and regret having it? and what is wavefront worth it?
Avatar m tn Dear Juandj, Usually, one can have laser vision correction after cataract surgery. Seek the care of an eyeMD and have your eyes examined for this. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone! Has anyone had laser corrective surgery for their vision? I do not have any eye issues but do get visual field defects from a brain lesion but also read that it is not recommended if the patient has an autoimmune condition.
Avatar n tn I was just wondering if it was possible to have laser vision correction since I have lattice degeneration? The problem is that I am nearsighted in one eye and farsighted in the other, and I am riddled with lattice degeneration in both eyes. If I had the laser vision correction done, would I have to wait until after my retina detached and then have it reattached and have the surgery done? Any information you can give me would be most helpful. Thank you for your time.
Avatar n tn I have done as much research as i can about correcting strabismus, the main procedure seems to be surgery to lengthen the muscles another alternative seems to be Botox (which lasts for about 3 months although there are the odd reports of botox having an permanent effect). I have just found out that laser sculpturing of the cornea is also used to correct strabismus, it appears that this is done my implant a prism lense on the eye.
Avatar m tn Lasik or femtosecond laser correction of astigmatism is more predictable the scalpel corneal surgery JC MD
Avatar n tn 50 for the astigmatism in the right eye and -2.50 in the left eye. I now have 20/20 in my right eye so no correction for distance for the new glasses I will have and -0.50 astigmatism. For the left eye, he overcorrected a bit so I will have +0.75 in the left eye with -0.50 for the astigmatism. With the correction, I will have 20/20 in my left eye, and that is even with the fact that I have a scar on my retina which distorts the image (that is from a CNV I had two years ago).
Avatar m tn During implant of Rezoom lens for catarract surgery, my doctor did relaxing incisions to correct the astigmatism in left eye which said was a 5. That was June 27th, '07. Since then he has done one laser correction in his office to "fine tune" the astigmatism problem, and it looks like he will have to do that at least one more time. The eye is improving but very slowly and he seems confident it will be fine in time. I'm having the other eye done next week. March 12 '08.
Avatar m tn I recently had cataract surgery on one eye, and the IOL isn't providing vision as sharp as I would have liked to have obtained. My surgeon says that it's possible to correct this through a laser procedure. Has anyone gone through this situation, and could you relate your results if you had further correction.
Avatar m tn I will be having cataract surgery and have a choice of with or with-out laser-assisted surgery. Am I likely to have a better outcome using the laser? It will cost more. Thanks!
Avatar n tn However, in the right eye, it turned out perfectly (no correction needed). In the left eye, there is an overcorrection of .75 diopters. In any case, since I needed glasses for slight double vision, that was corrected as well.
1207709 tn?1267588456 is laser correction suitable to which age? any problems in future? How will be the surgery? r they need spectaculars after surgery? any improvement in sight after laser vision correction?
Avatar m tn Hi! I'm 16 years old. I got minus 11 power in my both eyes. Can I undergo a laser surgery to reduce power before 21 years?? If not, then is there any alternative way?
Avatar n tn If you only have one eye that has vision have your eye examined yearly by an ophthalmologist, wear impact resistant glasses to protect your good eye and always be thinking eye safety and eye injury prevention.
Avatar n tn If you are asking about laser vision correction such as Lasik or PRK, then I recommend you wait until at least 18-21 years of age because the refractive error of the eye is much more stable after that. If you have surgery before then, you could have a less than desirable effect or find that you soon might need glasses again.
Avatar m tn However, my surgeon told me that he does not recommend a laser surgery. In his opinion, a laser surgery may hinder subsequent operations on the retina if need arises. Is this really the case? What is the latest research/experience in this respect? Thanks very much. Thanks very much.
Avatar m tn Aboiut 15 weeks ago, my left eye had a retinal tear and small detached area repaired by cryo and a small gas bubble. Those repaired areas were fine, but at my 2 week followup, a circumferential 360 degree detachment of my retina was present. About 11 weeks ago, that was repaired by vitrectomy, laser, scleral buckle, and my eye was filled with SF6 gas. After 7 weeks of face-down recovery, my bubble was small enough to go face-up. My retina was reportedly in excellent recovery.
Avatar m tn 25 for the right one (for reading at 18 in). A correction of +1.50 is needed for the left eye to view near objects, and -2.50 is needed for the right one to view far objects. Corrected visual acuity six months after surgery was about 20/30 for the left eye and J2 (at 15 in) for the right eye. Questions: (1) Would capsulotomy tend to decrease refraction within the eye (increase focal length) and thereby reduce the amount of negative correction presently needed?
Avatar m tn In Laser-Blended vision, laser refractive surgery is used to correct the dominant eye for distance and the non-dominant eye for close vision while the depth of field of each eye is increased. As a result, the brain ...
Avatar n tn My eyeball is now a rather jagged shape as a result, although this is not visible. I am short sighted and would like to know whether laser vision correction is an option in these circumstances. If not, then please advise on whether I could wear contact lenses without worry of one catching on the jagged edge of my eyeball.
Avatar f tn What are my options regarding vision correction for the right eye? Dr. McDonald relocated after Hurricane Katrina so I can't ask her; I truly wish she were still here. Misc. info- I have many floaters and have been examined by opth. extensively but have no retinal tear/detachmts. I do have a small area of lattice degeneration that they monitor at my exams. I have ocular hypertension but not glaucoma; visual fields are normal.
Avatar m tn Eye Surgeon advised me to have surgery for Right Eye first on 19th March 2014 and Left Eye on 9th May 2014 which is covered under OHIP. I had IOL Master test also. Now I have a question to medical professionals? Can I have Laser correction for near vision after cataract surgery? or Can I use Contact lenses for near Vision? I am very much worried of my situation. Awaiting your professional advise.
Avatar n tn The last for exotropia. Post surgery I developed an over correction with a return to esotropia with diplopia and a tilt. On Jan. 23, 2009, my ophthalmologist recommended a recession of the previously resected right medial rectus on an adjustible suture with asymmetric adjustment for the tilt. I was under general anesthesia, and at some point, while working on the eye muscle it weakened and Tore, and the surgery was stopped until it could fully healed itself.
775267 tn?1237008747 Found my right eye had retinal hole and the left eye's weak spot too was not in good form. Underwent laser surgery in both eyes. Everything was fine till 2 months back. Now during my routine check up my doctor said the laser seal is intact but multiple new weak spots have developed around the laser seal in both my eyes and I also have lattice degeneration. As usual I have been advised to follow up every 6 months and look for floaters, flashes, blurred vision.
Avatar n tn Definately think twice before undergoing any type of refractive surgery and seek several expert medical opinions both on this forum and with surgeons highly experienced. Not sure if you meant Laser vision correction or actual surgery to put in an implant.
