In brief: Lasik may be for you

Lasik can correct nearsightedness up to -12.
...Lasik should be able to remove 100% of your glasses.. FYI.... -4.00 is legally blind without glasses... You cannot see the giant "E" without glasses. Gat a #Lasik evaluation...It is usually FREE..

In brief: LASIK

Lasik can typically correct most patients with prescriptions between +5 to -10 d of prescription as long as they are good candidates otherwise.

In brief: Mild

-1.00 would be considered mild myopia (nearsightedness).
There are many factors that go into making you a lasik candidate other than your prescription. Assuming you meet the other criteria, it can be corrected. See a refractive surgeon for consultation.
