Avatar f tn Hello Has anyone had Lasek laser eye surgery? I've had a bit of dry eye syndrome in the past but the symptoms have gone now. I have been told by other people that Lasek may be better but my surgeon said Lasik would be just fine. Has anyone had Lasek? Apparently its more painful to heal but same results (& cheaper). Both are being done by a laser not a knife. Just a little confused and would appreciate feedback from anyone who has had either.

280369 tn?1316705641 My husband is really considering Lasik eye surgery now and wants to have it done soon. I am trying to read all I can about it and make sure this is the best route. He has pretty bad eyesight and is even a little color blind (certain colors he can't make out). It is getting really expensive to keep buying glasses...almost 300 bucks each time we go. And because of the type of work he does, they get ruined and stretched out pretty quickly.

Avatar n tn My eye sight is quiet weak around -6 for both left and right. I wanted to get my laser eye surgery done to get rid of glasses forever. I went to the dr yesterday, he did few tests and then he told me that I can never ever have my laser done because my cornea is very thin and they cant make it more thinner. Another thing he told me is that my Retina is weak as well, which he meant by spots. I did have this in my mind that he would say this because I knew about it already.

However depending on the thickness of your cornea and its radius of curvature and the length of your eyes a type surface laser (PRK) might reduce the numbers 6-7 diopters to -4 and -1.00 to 0.00 You would need to see an Eye MD ophthalmologist that specializes in corneal/refractive surgery.
Avatar n tn IT WAS LASIK EYE SURGERY THEIR WAS NO ANESTHESIA THEY GIVE A VALIUM, TO CALM YOU BUT IT DOES NOT MAKE YOU GO TO SLEEP YOU ARE VERY AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE LIGHT DURING THE PROCEDURE THE ASTIGMATISM HAD REDEVELOPED IN HER LEFT EYE THAT IS WHY THEY HAD TO DO THE LASIK SURGERY AGAIN IT FELT LIKE A HOT SHARP NEEDLE DRAGGING OVER HER EYEBALL THE MOST THEY COULD COME UP WITH IT MAYBE THE CORNEA WAS THICK AND IT WAS JUST ONE OF THOSE DAYS REALLY WOULD
Avatar m tn If you only have good vision in one eye and the other has severe amblyopia it is probably not a good idea to put a secondary intraocular lens (IOL) into your eye. Lasik, CK and other refractive procedures will not normally correct the amount of hyperopia you have. I suspect that given what you were told by the Eye MDs that examined you that there is no acceptable treatment for your problem.
Avatar m tn corneal thickness, corneal topography, whether or not you have dry eye or ocular surface disease are only a few. I would seek out a very reputable refractive surgeon, and have a complete evaluation. Don't just be swayed by price. A really good refractive surgeon will screen you carefully, and honestly tell you that you are not a good candidate if you are not. In the proper patient who is a good candidate, the results can be excellent.
Avatar m tn For moderate astigmatism, a LASIK eye surgery has proven effective, and gives you freedom from wearing glasses or contact lenses. This surgery reshapes the inner layer of your cornea (shaped like a football for a person with astigmatism), to treat astigmatism.
Avatar n tn I had All Laser LASIK with Intralase performed over 3 months ago and I have noticed that my left eye is almost always worse then my right. The vision on my right eye is extremely sharp even for far off objects but I notice that if I close my right eye and focus using my left that I cannot see things as clearly. I might be driving and notice that the traffic lights look very sharp on my right eye but I will see more of a halo on my left eye.
1539436 tn?1292873471 I got very excited about the idea but before i take a step, could you please advice me if my age is the ryt age to get a laser eye surgery, as my aunt warned me of my age to be very young. she advised me to be atleast 24+.
Avatar n tn About 4 years ago when I was 22 I was diagnosed with Lattice degeneration of the retina, I had a laser surgery to correct it that same year. Now I would like to have LASIK to correct my nearsightness could i be a candidate for it? I'm perfectly fine now, I have check ups every year, and I really want to get rid of my glasses. Thanks!
Avatar n tn hi I had about 5 months ago wavefront eye laser lasik surgery. My eyes have been dry and sensitive and my eye sight has been very good. Everything was great until about a month ago when i started to see like fragments of veins and a black dots which moves about my eye when i look up or down and sometimes straight ahead a black blob. The problem gets better or worse depending what type of day light i am in. I am really upset as i went to the best clinic.
Avatar m tn Which one of the current laser eye procedures, namely Lasik, PRK, Lasek and Custom Lasik do you think is most beneficial to address my large pupil size? Your comments would be greatly appreciated. Now, I have yet another question  I have a mild red-green color deficiency which is hereditary in nature. After starring at the Ishihara plates for 15-30 seconds on average, I can decipher roughly 60-70% of them.

Avatar m tn Okay so here's the history in brief Feb 2012 - I visit VASAN EYE CARE - KOCHI - INDIA to consult a doc if i can go head with lasik, She suggests since i was an avid contact lens user i must do barrage laser for left eye treatment first b4 doing actual laser op. Feb 11 - Barrage laser done within abt 15 mins Feb 19 - Zyoptix laser surgery. Done on both the eyes.
Avatar f tn a few years earlier, i had LASIK for near vision in my right eye and for far vision in my left, stronger eye. The right cataract surgery went well. the left eye was not clear like the right, immediately noticeable. i was not given the lens case afterwards for the left eye and wondered if it was possible the wrong scrip was used. how would i find out short of cutting open the incision and retreiving the lens? the dr. then used a laser he said would sharpen my vision some.
Avatar f tn What is the difference between 'lasik' surgery and Yag Capsulotomy; Is the same instrument used;? If doctor doesn't have 'latest' ''lower-energy' instrument for Yag Capsulotomy would that 'compromise' my eyes for that procedure; ? Is recovery time the same for each procedure;? What is usual follow-up appointment time for each procedure? especially to check for eye-pressure problems? If there were to be a retina =detachment after Yag Capsulotomy, how soon could that happen?
Avatar m tn hi i am rahul i have fixed an appointment for the eye surgery for removing the glasses it wil be done through laser and it is bladless and the procedure is known as i lasik. i want to know how about the pain after the surgery and the complication and safety of this procedure.......
Avatar f tn Now that my eye sight has shown regression after my lasik eye surgery (I now need glasses again), they (Lasikmd docs) are reccommending I have an enhancement down at the 3th month mark to recorrrect it. I am terrified at the thought of this as I had a terrible experience the first time with the origninal surgery (terrible pain, loads of complications and poor follow up care). What do I do now, go back to wearing glasses or risk another surgery? Please help.
Avatar n tn Is controlled open angle glaucoma an absolute contraindication to Lasik Surgery? If not, what are acceptable parameters for intraoccular pressures? What are the added risks, if any, regarding glaucoma and Lasik Surgery?
Avatar n tn there are ways to reduce the wrinkles, at times smoothing them out with the laser, if they are severe enough. You need an evaluation by an experienced LASIK surgeon. try to get a recommendation from an eye md (ophthalmologist) in your area who doesn't perfrom LASIK.
