Depends: Laser is used to treat many things in the eye from abnormal vessels, to lens power. It works in most cases. Check with your ophthalmologist (optometrists cannot do laser surgery) if this has been advised for you.

What is the risk of laser eye treatment ?

Too vague: Lasik? For diabetes/glaucoma? For lasik, it depends a lot on how much astigmatism, how thin your cornea, how myopic you are. Risk of blindness, or dry eye, or glare/halos etc.? You need to speak to the surgeon and then get a 2nd opinion- this forum is not ideal.
