Can I Determine My Vision From My Corrective Lens Prescription
Not likely: Iols are implanted, corrective lenses to compensate in most cases for the remove of the natural lens when it developed a cataract. Some are exploring this surgery as a way to correct overall power in those without cataracts. Contacts can fully correct most vision needs, and an iol can only equal this correction. If your hope was to get better vision than contacts can give, that wont be done. ...Read more
I am shortsighted and want refractive laser eye surgery to correct my vision. Does that mean the surface of my eye will be cut with a razor?
There are: Parameters that must be measured to see if you would be a good candidate for lasik. You need to see an ophthalmologist to measure these parameters then determine if you could have it done.

Sir I've 6/36 vision for my left eye and 6/18 for my right eye. Can I correct this using spectacles?

I have gone from contacts to lenses and have not had any vision problem for years now. Spectacles are what you need. Find frames for the glasses that will make you look spectacular.

What will my vision be after lasik surgery? I am severely nearsighted and currently wear glasses that correct my vision to nearly 20/20. I am concerned that laser eye surgery will not be able to restore my vision to that level. Can lasik return my vision
If : If your ophthalmologist feels that you qualify for lasik surgery, then there is a good chance that you will reach the 20/20 level after lasik surgery, as over 90% of patients undergoing lasik reach 20/20 after surgery.

ICL : Icl surgery is superb for correcting nearsightedness without resorting to lasik surgery.
