Could vision get worse after laser refractive surgery?

Sometimes

Refractive_error
After LASIK and PRK refractive surgery, there is sometimes a change back to some degree of the original refractive needs. This is due to the nuances of biology and does not reflect problems with technique. This is termed regression and can be fixed with an enhancement procedure if needed.

What do I need to do in order to get refractive surgery to correct astigmatism in eye ?

Refractive surgery

Astigmatism
Patients who are interested in refractive surgery for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism should be screen by a refractive surgeon to determine if they are good candidates. If so, then their refractive errors can routinely be managed by LASIK or PRK.

Dr. Hamid Sajjadi answered:

I Used To Had Very Less Dry Eyes And Also Minor Floaters Now Its Fading Away But Is It Mean That I Am Not Eligible For Refractive Surgery ?

Problems are not

Eye_surgery
typical of dry eyes & Floaters at your ageā€¦.. Must see an Ophthalmologist for proper DX. I personally do not keep the age 18 as the limit for laser. Simple myopia stabilizes after 7-8 years of start of glasses. Hyperopia can have laser @ any age depending on diagnosis. A person becoming myopic at age 16 does not become stable till age 22-24. Keratoconus & Pathological myopia are different.

Can vision worsen after laser refractive surgery?

Yes

Vision
LASIK generally gives excellent vision after the first week of healing. But this is a biological system and the tissues can modify over time. We call this regression and it usually adds some degree of myopia over time. For those in which this happens, it is usually minor but if it is significant, an "enhancement" procedure can be done to reverse the regression. Discuss with your LASIK doc.

Tell me about Icl vs lasik - refractive surgery?

Cornea vs Lens

Lasik
Refractive surgery by sculpting the cornea to a perfect shape is achieved by the EXcimer Laser (Lasik) while correction of Refractive error by adding a permanent contact lens(ICL) on the natural lens in the eye ( Lens Augmentation procedure- Gulani AC) is done when teh corneal surgery is inappropriate for that case ie. Thin cornea etc
