Your SRG Eye surgeon will ask you detailed questions about your eye health and then evaluate your eyes to ensure that you don’t have any complications or conditions that might lead to further complications or poor outcomes of the surgery. This includes:
- Any eye disease that leads to a continuous deterioration of your vision and keratoconus (thinning of your cornea).
- If keratoconus is present in your family history, even if you don’t have keratoconus, we will be very cautious about any elective eye surgery.
- Uveitis, Keratitis, herpes simplex affecting the eye region, and any other eye infections.
- Eye-lid disorders or Eye injuries.
- Dry eyes: If an individual has dry eyes, LASIK surgery may make the condition worse.
- Large pupils: LASIK may not be appropriate if the patient’s pupils are large, especially in dim light. Lasik Surgery may result in debilitating symptoms such as star-bursts, glare, halos and ghost images.
- Glaucoma: This surgical procedure might raise your eye pressure, which has the potential of making your glaucoma worse.
- Suppose an individual has severe nearsightedness or a high refractive error has been diagnosed.
- An individual with a reasonably good (overall) vision; If you are able to see well enough to need Eyeglasses or Contact-lens only part of the time (Occasionally), in this case, an improvement from the Lasik surgery may not be worth the risks.
- You have age-related eye changes which are resulting you to have presbyopia (less clear vision).
- You are actively participating in contact sports. If you regularly receive blows or punches or any hard pressure to the face and eyes, such as during boxing or martial arts or combat forces, LASIK surgery may not be a suitable option for you.
- Any condition or disease that affects your immune system and makes you more prone to infections or impairs your ability to heal, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, HIV and other autoimmune disorders.
- If you are taking any immunosuppressive medication for any reason.
- Depression or certain chronic pain conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and fibromyalgia.
The reasons for these factors are not entirely clear but maybe somehow related to how you perceive pain as an individual.
But, over the period, as you grow older or in low-light conditions, you may still need to rely on eyeglasses.
Individuals do report high satisfaction after a LASIK surgery. But long-term results haven’t been well-studied or often aren’t available. The central part of the reason for such a situation is that patients are overall satisfied after Lasik surgery; hence they don’t feel the need for repeat examinations; as a result, follow-up data from such patients is not collected.
We must also keep in mind that the LASIK procedure has been refined over time — the technology and techniques are continually changing, which makes it difficult to conclude from the limited data that is reported. But, this also means that every new generation is getting a better and improved form of Lasik surgery with better and developed equipment.
