Question

 

 

Hi First,

I’d like to give you some information, though I don’t know what it all means. I am 24 years old and near sighted. In my right eye I have SPH. -2.75, CYL. -.50, AXIS 180. In my left eye I have SPH. -1.75, CYL. -1.00, AXIS 45.

Pupillary distance is 54. My question is about lasik surgery. I want to know what would be the best surgery for me. I am more concerned about starbursts and halos after my surgery than the price (though obviously that’s also a consideration).

Can you suggest a surgery that can minimize the risk of sunbursts and halos? (I realize the first week or so I can expect them regardless)

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

I can't determine if you are a good candidate for lasik by the information that you gave me. The most important test beside full ocular examination is called corneal topography or pentacam.

This test will determine if you are a good candidate or not for lasik. To minimize the risk of halos, you have to choose customized lasik or wave-front lasik.

This type of lasik will decrease high order aberrations which cause glare and halos.
