I Hate Wearing Glasses
Is it safe to have lasik surgery after having had keratitis? I hate wearing glasses, so i've mostly been wearing contacts, but recently i got keratitis. My eye doctor says it's healed but wants me to wait before wearing contacts again. I'm kind of scared
There : There are several causes of keratitis. Depending on the cause, it may be safe to have lasik. If the keratitis was caused by herpes virus (not uncommon), then lasik may cause a recurrence of the keratitis that may be problematic. In this case, your surgeon may recommend either not having lasik or the use of medications before and after surgery to decrease the risk of recurrent keratitis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

-1.75 and -1.5. I wear glasses 5 years tv but hate them. Optician recommends them for computer and concentrated tasks too. Essential or not?
Optical aid: Glasses are not a medical item. You need only wear them when you need clarity of vision for a given task. There is no harm to not wearing them; you will just not see as well in those cases. When in doubt, always check with your ophthalmologist - the fully trained eye doctor. ...Read more
My cornea is too thin for the lasik, imapprehensive about prk, if not surgery what other options do I have? I hate glasses I have corneal thickness of 464 and 478 and I have been adivised against lasik, they said i may be a candidate for prk, can you plea
Your : Your doctor has provided you excellent advice so far. While the cornea thickness is too thin for laisk, you may be a candidate for prk if your preoperative testing says your cornea is of regular shape and strong. The amount of correction needed may also play a role. There has never been a well done study to show superiority of one procedure (lasik = prk in terms of final visual acuity). In other words, i believe bladeless lasik is equal to prk in final outcome (the us military feels the same way about procedure for our soldiers). In summary, prk does not provide immediate results and can be associated with significant discomfort in some patients. However, you will obtain outstanding results if you are a good candidate for it. Finally, there is more factors than cornea thickness when looking at candidacy for laser vision correction. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is their any safe eye sight operation? Coz l hate to wear glasses my eyesight is -0.75 please ans.My head is paining while using contact color lens
Small benefit: It sounds as if you are having difficulty with your contact lense fitting poorly. This should be explored first so you will get a comfortable lens. The amount of correction you have, -0/75, is rather small for consideration of lasik corrective surgery. Check with your ophthalmologist and consider the options and probably get a better fitting contact lens. ...Read more
Can a person with a prescription higher than -5.50 get ortho-k?? What is better lasik or OrthoK? I have astigmatism &dry eyes &hate glasses &contacts.
No: However if you get used to wearing glasses and see better with them, then you'll want to wear them all the time and thus without them your eyes will seem worse (like deterioration). Glasses only correct a refractive error, not change the eyesight. Eyesight changes with a lot of near work without breaks, or with age as the cornea/lens changes, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
