Laser Eye Surgery/Lasik eye Power correction


I am 32 year old man from Chennai and interested to correct my eye power to avoid glass.

Currently my eye power is  -2.5 cylindrical power in both the eyes with 80Degree axis in left eye.

1) How cylindrical power correction is differing from Spherical power correct?

2) What is the average cost for my eye power correction?

3) What are the different type of laser surgery for cylindrical power and cost in India?

4) Currently I am unable to face the opposite vehicle headlights, is this issue will be cleared after Lasik eye surgery?

5) Is it possible to correct the eye power without surgery by taking health food and exercise?

Dear Karthikeyan,

Thank you for your query.

Whether your spherical and/ or cylindrical powers are accurate, only an examination with a good optometrist or ophthlmologist will determine this. Minus powers or Myopia is what is reflected as Spherical powers. Cylindrical powers are due to irregularity of the surface of the eye - cornea, which is also called Astigmatism.

Please go through for details on our LASIK procedure and write to for details on costing and process with our centre.

Best REgards,
