Lens correction or refractive surgery?

Hi all,<span style="font-size: 13.3333px; font-family: Verdana; color: rgb(34, 34, 34); vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">I have astigmatism and using glasses for 3 years. But now, I hate my glasses. Lens correction is a complicated task and I’m confused with its pushing and stabilization. So I’m thinking of a refractive surgery rather than using the glasses.One of my friends had a refractive laser eye surgery in Goldberg centre vision correction, Toronto and got free from glasses. He told me that the one who don’t have any retinal problem, corneal scar or other eye problem can try refractive or laser eye surgery. Still I’m confused. Is surgery a good decision for me? What are the precautions to be taken before the surgery? Can anyone share your surgery experience? Thank you in advance.

RE: Lens correction or refractive surgery?

I think that if you have the money for a refractive surgery, then go for it. I also wear glasses and I have thought about going for surgery too. Sadly, right now, I still cannot afford it. I think being free from glasses and even contact lenses would be the best feeling. No more blurred views in the morning. No more struggling to put in contact lenses. No more buying lenses and frames each year. You can actually see completely because there will be no frames blocking your view.

A few considerations you have to take are:

1. Make sure that you go to a reputable LASIK Surgery Center.

2. Undergo the tests they require which can take days.

3. You cannot wear lenses a few days before the test as well as the surgery.

4. Tell the doctor about your past and present medical histories.

5. Tell the doctor about medications you are currently taking.

6. Don't use creams, lotions and makeup before the surgery as it can deposit debris to your eyelashes and eyes.

7. Have someone accompany you before and after the surgery.

I hope this helps you!
