Eye parameters: The level of vision is not the criteria used for lasik evaluation. It is a combination of the refractive error (numbers like -6.00 on your eyeglass prescription) and the thickness of the front of the eye. Other factors include general health, age and history of eye disease. Check with your ophthalmologists for suitability or with the lasik surgeon you have chosen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had my eyes examined recently and it seems my left has actually improved in vision when it was my worst and weakest eye. is this possible?
Absolutely, visual: acuity primarily determined by curvature of cornea, the 8 extraocular muscles (which pull to rotate the eye), the shape of the lens (behind the iris) combined with intraocular pressure so as to focus light rays on the fovea centralis portion of the retina combined with light receptor density. Thus there are multiple interacting factors which can change, both quickly & over time, to change focus. ...Read more
My left eye has been red for around 5 days, but my right is fine. The vision on my left eye is a little worst these few days, what's wrong? No allergies
An exam helpful: Red eye without comment on pain, but worsening vision makes me wonder about low grade inflammation, perhaps asymmetrical dryness or allergy. The latter two usually feel scratchy, dry, or itchy. With your arthritis like systemic history, i'd wonder whether you have an anterior uveitis. An exam is necessary for you and i recommend seeing an ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
