Laser Eye Surgery/what is the last possible power after laser eye surgery


Hello Doctor,
I am 19 years old,I have 2 questions to ask. My questions to you is,what is the best age to have laser eye surgery and my power is
Left eye-9.50 and Right eye-8.50,so if I will be operated, what is the chance, will it get fully treated or there are some possibilities some power may remain. Hoping for your answer soon.

Thank You.

Dear Junaed,

Thank you for your query.
The best age to undergo LASIK is when your powers have remained stable for at least a year. Usually this happens after age 18 years. However, in some, as physical growth continues, the spectacle powers may also change. Since LASIK is done as a permanent correction, one would like to conduct this procedure only when the chances of needing re treatment are least.

I would advise that you to undergo a LASIK evaluation first to determine other factors which play a role in eligibility of the procedure.
You can plan the treatment accordingly.

if any further doubts, please read more about LASIK on

Please call +91 22 66921000 if in Mumbai and need an evaluation for the same.

Kind regards,
