Will I be required to wear glasses after LASIK surgery?

Q: I am a 27 years old male with an eye power of +3 in the right eye and +2 in the left one. Is LASIK surgery suitable for me? After the surgery, will I be required to wear glasses again? I have head about two technologies for LASIK surgery- I-LASIK and zyoptix? Which one is better for me? Does a LASIK surgery have some side effects?

A:You seem to have a mixed astigmatism and on the basis of your refractive error alone, there is no reason why you should not be eligible for LASIK. You can definitely get yourself evaluated for LASIK from an experienced refractive surgeon who will be able to assess your suitability after a complete evaluation of your eye in detail. LASIK aims to fully correct your refractive error and you should not need glasses for your routine daily activities after undergoing laser treatment. Zyoptix is the brand name offered by one particular company while LASIK is a generic term referring to laser vision correction treatment for refractive errors. Contact your refractive surgeon to help you decide which would be the best technique for you. There are no significant side effects after LASIK but the decision to operate can only be taken after assessing your suitability for the procedure.
